Does the Way We Teach Create Behavior Disorders in Culturally Different Students?
Education and Treatment of Children, v19 n3 p354-70 Aug 1996
This article considers effects of a mismatch between the cognitive styles of children from minority cultural groups and cognitive styles promoted in schools, leading to inappropriate interaction, assessment, instruction, or discipline. It suggests such students may be inappropriately identified as having a learning disability or emotional and/or behavioral disorder. Strategies for prevention are offered. (DB)
