The Challenge of Diversity.
Bowman, Barbara T.
Phi Delta Kappan, v76 n3 p218-24 Nov 1994
Rules of development are the same for all children, but social contexts shape children's development into different configurations. To educate culturally and linguistically diverse children, teachers must be sensitive to the similarities and differences among themselves, their students, and students' families. They must create a classroom environment that uses all participants' past experiences to build a social system together. (18 references) (MLH)
