Ofori-Dankwa, Joseph; Lane, Robert W.
Teaching in Higher Education, v5 n4 p493-99 2000
Identifies four approaches to cultural diversity that professors at institutions of higher education may take. These are neutrality, similarity, diversity, and diversimilarity. Identifies the strengths and weaknesses of each of these approaches, and argues for the diversimilarity approach, using the teaching of the death penalty (and examination of differences and similarities of perspectives) in the United States to illustrate.
