Building on the Strengths of Urban Learners.
Williams, Belinda; Newcombe, Ellen
Educational Leadership, v51 n8 p75-78 May 1994
The Urban Learner Framework stresses four themes: the importance of students' cultural strengths and learning experiences, culture's influence on cognitive development, the importance of motivation and effort, and resilience as a characteristic of urban learners. Barriers to change include belief systems, district size, regulations, multiple reforms, and time constraints. (20 references) (MLH)
