I, Too, Am an American: Preservice Teachers Reflect upon National Identity.
Gallavan, Nancy P.
MCT, v20 n2 p8-12 Spr 2002
Preservice teachers read poetry by Langston Hughes and an Arab American student about being American, then composed and discussed their own poems. Poems helped them reflect on their own cultures and attitudes, thus developing a caring community of learners who valued diversity and human rights. Investigating cultural characteristics, self-identity, and national identity presented critical pedagogy inherent to effective multicultural education. (SM)
