A Beginning Teacher's Journey toward Culturally Responsive Practice
Birrell, James R.; Vanatter, Rebecca A.; Tinney, Mari Vawn
Multicultural Learning and Teaching, v1 n1 p1-11 Apr 2006
Few studies have explored the work of successful beginning teachers in diverse settings. This investigation follows one promising young, white elementary teacher through her student teaching in the inner city of Washington, D.C. and into her first year of teaching in a suburban, diverse Virginia school. Seven themes articulate her journey into more culturally responsive teaching. These themes may help teacher education candidates consider their own attitudes and actions towards diverse others.
