Practical Considerations for Working with Latino and Asian American Students and Families
Moreno, Gerardo; Wong-Lo, Mickie
Multicultural Learning and Teaching, v6 n1 Jul 2011
Preparing educators to work with students from culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) background is increasingly valued as the demographics of today?s classrooms continue to evolve. Embracing cultural differences and recognizing the distinctive factors associated within the composition of CLD families are critical elements as educators become more proficient in working with students from diverse backgrounds. Recommended practices discussed within this article provide a glimpse into two enriched cultures, Latino and Asian American, which are among the minority categories found to be most prevalent within the American education system. Furthermore, recognition of the contributing factors associated with cultural differences can be instrumental in cultivating the meaning of diversity as well as working with students of CLD background effectively.
