Can a Successful ESL Teacher Hold Deficit Beliefs of Her Students' Home Languages and Cultures?
Hertzog, Lisa
Multicultural Perspectives, v13 n4 p197-204 2011
In this article the author explores the seeming contradictions between the successful teaching practices of an English as a Second Language teacher and the deficit beliefs she expressed toward her students' home languages and cultures. This teacher believed her students were smart and capable, and she held herself accountable for her students achieving academic success. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
