Faculty Accountability for Culturally Inclusive Pedagogy and Curricula
Quaye, Stephen John; Harper, Shaun R.
Liberal Education, v93 n3 p32-39 Sum 2007
The authors' goal is to personalize some concerns of diverse student populations and encourage faculty to intentionally incorporate cultural inclusion into their pedagogy and their courses. Here, they share Julian's story, which is a composite of perspectives shared by the 219 participants in the National Black Male College Achievement Study, many of whom described similar approaches to assuming cultural ownership for their learning in classrooms on thirty predominantly white campuses. In light of Julian's story and the responses of some of his peers, the authors emphasize that the onus needs to shift from students, who are expected to adjust to insensitive and monocultural classroom environments, to faculty, who need to change their teaching approaches to benefit an increasingly diverse array of students.
