"Break It Down": One of the Cultural and Stylist Instructional Preferences of Black Males
McDougal, Serie, III
Journal of Negro Education, v78 n4 p432-440 Fall 2009
Interviews with students at an all-Black, all-male school in a major northeastern city revealed that a significant proportion of the participating students had a strong preference for practical, demonstrative explanations of new concepts and information that are directly related to their everyday experiential realities. These findings suggest that the participating students would benefit greatly from problem-based teaching strategies and culturally relevant instructional techniques. (Contains 1 figure.)
