Students as Experts: Tapping the Cultural and Linguistic Diversity of the Classroom.
Bean, Martha S.; And Others
Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, v6 n2 p99-112 1995
Discussion of the culturally diverse college student population focuses on how teacher understanding of that diversity (in which the students are experts), and on how it can inform the classroom culture can help defuse tensions and become a source for teaching. Dynamics of the culturally and linguistically diverse classroom are outlined and strategies for reducing miscommunication and expanding classroom practice proposed. (Author/MSE)
