What Do We Have To Do To Create Culturally Responsive Programs?: The Challenge of Transforming American Indian Teacher Education.
Belgarde, Mary Jiron; Mitchell, Rosalita D.; Arquero, Albenita
Action in Teacher Education, v24 n2 p42-54 Sum 2002
Investigated the nature, development, and effectiveness of teacher training programs for American Indians, contending that historical marginalization within and limited access to educational contexts have silenced Native communities' voices in school planning. Effective American Indian preservice programs provide access to university resources; engage community members in developing curriculum and instruction; immerse student teachers in authentic, diverse cultural settings; and model culturally responsive teaching. Promising models of education are described. (SM)
