Encouraging Family Involvement through Culturally Relevant Pedagogy
Goodman, Kela; Hooks, Laura
SRATE Journal, v25 n2 p33-41 Sum 2016
The purpose of this article is to describe one teacher education program's experience using an integrated approach to provide preservice teachers with both knowledge of and experience with diverse cultures. Included are three important components within this program that strive to assist preservice teachers as they develop an understanding of different cultures and working with families. First, we discuss research in parent/family relationships (Allen, 2007, 2010; Epstein & Sanders, 2006) and culturally relevant pedagogy (Gay, 2000; Villages & Lucas, 2002). Second, we provide descriptions of five instructional strategies that preservice teachers implement. Third, we offer strategies for supporting emerging bilingual students.
