Teaching Effectively in Racially and Culturally Diverse Classrooms
Ramsay, Nancy J.
Teaching Theology & Religion, v8 n1 p18-23 Jan 2005
Issues of racial and cultural diversity and racism pose particular challenges for effective teaching and learning in diverse theological classrooms. In this essay the author outlines specific strategies to confront racism and engage racially and culturally diverse students. Through the use of a model for understanding multicultural dynamics of teaching and learning, the author helps readers consider four epistemological categories: knowing our students, knowing ourselves as instructors, knowing how we teach, and knowing what we teach.
