Feedback in a Multiethnic Classroom Discussion: A Case Study
Strandberg, Max; Lindberg, Viveca
Intercultural Education, v23 n2 p75-88 2012
This article focuses on teaching "about" and "for" cultural diversity. More specifically, we look at the manner in which different types of teacher feedback either support or hinder student interaction and student learning. We identified seven types of feedback that were used in classroom discussions with 14-15-year-old students. The discussions and the feedback in these discussions provide insight into teaching about cultural diversity and also the impact of specific content that is focused on a sensitive topic. In this case, content of discussions related to a homework assignment about fear in different contexts. (Contains 6 notes.)
