Beginning to Think Critically about Culturally Responsive Pedagogy in Practice: An Elementary Education Book Study in Student Teaching
Eick, Charles J.; McCormick, Theresa M.
SRATE Journal, v19 n1 p52-60 Win 2009-2010
In this study student teachers in an elementary education program took part in a book study, "From Rage to Hope", on culturally responsive teaching. Interns critically reflected on their practice and began making changes based on practical strategies from the book. Four themes of learning and change emerged in intern written reflections: Project positive teaching behaviors; respect, value, and embrace individual differences; teach to individual student differences and; get to know students' lives. Results suggest that critical reflection and practical application work together in practice to begin to change thinking and skill in teaching diverse students. (Contains 1 table.)
