Challenging Old Assumptions: Preparing Teachers for Inner City Schools.
Olmedo, Irma M.
Teaching and Teacher Education, v13 n3 p245-58 Apr 1997
Researchers analyzed journals and essays from an elementary teacher education course, examining white prospective teachers' changing views about inner-city schools with minority children as they completed fieldwork and relevant readings. The experiences helped them question old assumptions about urban students and teaching and about the value of multicultural education. (SM)
