Cultural Diversity Research on Learning and Development: Conceptual, Methodological, and Strategic Considerations.
Orellana, Marjorie Faulstich; Bowman, Phillip
Educational Researcher, v32 n5 p26-32 Jun-Jul 2003
Identifies two conceptual and methodological limitations to current treatments of cultural diversity in social science research: the tendency to treat race, ethnicity, culture, and social class as fixed categories and the tendency to focus on single levels of analysis. Proposes strategic guidelines for mitigating these limitations, illustrating them with examples from research on bilingual Hispanic children's work as translators and on African American "culture retainers."
