What Can Teacher Education Programs Do to Prepare Teachers to Teach High-Achieving Culturally Diverse Male Students?
Milner, H. Richard; Tenore, F. Blake; Laughter, Judson
Gifted Child Today, v31 n1 p18-23 Win 2008
In this article, the authors discuss what teacher education programs can do to prepare teachers to teach high-achieving culturally diverse male students. They suggest that special attention needs to be directed at the educational experiences of high-achieving Black male students. They also believe that diverse male learners, and especially high achievers, are often left out of policies and practices in teacher education programs that ultimately could contribute to what Ford (1996) called these students' underachievement. Their suggestions for teacher education programs are grounded in their research, understanding, and conceptualizations of high-achieving students (e.g., Milner, 2002), culturally diverse male high achievers (Milner & Ford, 2007; Tenore & Milner, 2006), practicing and preservice teachers, as well as teacher education (Ford & Milner, 2005).
