The Caring of Strangers: Insights from a Field Experience in a Culturally Unfamiliar Community.
Bondy, Elizabeth; Davis, Steven
Action in Teacher Education, v22 n2 p54-66 Sum 2000
Reports a study of white, middle-class, elementary preservice teachers who tutored poor African-American students. Interviews indicated that although all tutors claimed to care for their assigned students and to act with the best intentions, some had to overcome initial relationship difficulties to establish a connectedness with their students. Forms of caring that eventually resulted in success are described. (SM)
