Learning Styles of African American Children: Instructional Implications
Hale, Janice Ellen
Journal of Curriculum and Teaching, v5 n2 p109-118 2016
This article offers examples of valiant efforts to develop meaningful instructional implications from learning styles scholarship. Additionally, an example is given of an advance in the public policy arena that merges the efforts of psychological scholars with that of lawmakers to apply their research to effect change for children. The "Brown" decision was a stellar example in which Lead Attorney Thurgood Marshall and his team were buffeted by the scholarship of Drs. Kenneth and Mamie Clark (1963, 1965). They provided empirical data that documented that the "separate but equal" doctrine of education was psychologically devastating to Negro children. It is recommended that contemporary public policy architects follow in their footsteps.
