Let Our Students Be Our Guides: McNair Scholars "Guide" Three Urban Teacher Educators on Meeting the Needs of Culturally Diverse Learners
Jett, Christopher C.; McNeal Curry, Kezia; Vernon-Jackson, Sandra
Urban Education, v51 n5 p514-533 Jun 2016
This case study examines the PreK-16 schooling experiences of nine McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program Scholars from a large, urban university in the southeast with respect to culturally relevant teaching. This study highlights the experiences of the McNair Scholars in an effort to assist educators in creating spaces that allow culturally diverse learners to thrive. Using students' experiences to guide this study, the authors discover that the McNair Scholars were successful in their educational pursuits despite some barriers. Furthermore, the authors discuss implications at the micro- and macro-levels concerning culturally responsive learning environments for ethnically diverse students.
