Bridging Cultures with Classroom Strategies.
Rothstein-Fisch, Carrie; Greenfield, Patricia M.; Trumbull, Elise
Educational Leadership, v56 n7 p64-67 Apr 1999
Collectivism, stressing family members' interdependence, is common to Latino cultures. In contrast, schools foster independence and individual achievement. To help teachers understand assumptions underlying these different values, the authors developed the "Bridging Cultures Project" as a research-based professional-development program. Science education applications are described. (MLH)
