Culturalizing Instruction: Creating a More Inclusive Context for Learning for African American Students
Parsons, Eileen Carlton
High School Journal, v86 n4 p23-30 Apr-May 2003
At a time when the population of school-aged children becomes more culturally diverse and the need for a more highly educated populace to function in this informational, technological and global community more pressing, it is important that all students be actively engaged in an educative process that legitimizes diverse perspectives. One way to address the educational challenges emanating from cultural diversity is to make the teaching-learning context more inclusive by culturalizing instruction. The aims of this article are to explain what is meant by culturalizing instruction, to illustrate culturalized instruction via a case example, and to discuss the implications of culturalizing instruction for "good" teaching.
