Difference Does Not Mean "Less Than": Our Pathway for Educating an Entire Nation of Learners
Thomas, Cornell
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n140 p69-75 Win 2014
The socially constructed categorization of groups of people has formed perceptions that cause one to believe that being different also means being less than those representing the so-called norm. It is suggested in this chapter that we must broaden our perspectives regarding the differences among us and begin to see each person as an individual with gifts worthy of membership in our society.
