Cockrell, Karen S.; Placier, Peggy L.; Cockrell, Dan H.; Middleton, Julie N.
Teaching and Teacher Education, v15 n4 p351-66 May 1999
Teacher educators addressed negative student responses to a multicultural foundations course by designing an action research study to investigate students' identities, experiences, and beliefs. Analysis of written assignments and focus group discussions uncovered three categories of beliefs about the purposes of schools in relation to cultural diversity. Findings suggested relationships between previous cross-cultural experiences, gender, and beliefs. (SM)
