Hearing Footsteps in the Dark: African American Students' Descriptions of Effective Teachers.
Howard, Tyrone C.
Journal of Education for Students Placed at Risk, v7 n4 p425-44 2002
Investigated African American students' perceptions of urban teaching practices and learning environments. Data from student interviews highlighted three central teaching strategies that students believed had a positive impact: teachers who established family, community, and home-like characteristics; teachers who established culturally connected caring relationships with students; and use of certain types of verbal communication and affirmation.
