Long, Trisha Wies – Multicultural Learning and Teaching, 2017
Adolescents are often disengaged in the learning process, being more focused on social media and self-interest than classroom content. Full circling is a process that can be used to help students collaboratively engage in learning and actively reflect on historical events--especially those that are under reported in history books. In the present…

Rainer, Jackson P. – Multicultural Learning and Teaching, 2015
Efforts in the classroom have most often addressed racism from the perspective of the groups affected by discriminatory policies and practice. While diversity education of this sort has demonstrated positive impact on educational outcomes for college students (Gurin, Dey, Hurtado, & Gurin, 2002), this approach places primary attention on the…

Rieger, Alicja – Multicultural Learning and Teaching, 2015
This article discusses an individualized narrative on a contribution that a White educator can add to the field of teacher education, in particular multicultural teacher education.

Yawn, Christopher D. – Multicultural Learning and Teaching, 2014
Across the United States, the number of blacks entering and graduating from college is at its highest level. Seemingly, progress is being made, however, probing individual students about their experiences may reveal that appearance of diversity in higher education does not translate into acceptance from the majority group. This article discusses…

Buckmiller, Tom M.; Cramer, Renee A. – Multicultural Learning and Teaching, 2013
Native students often desire an education that will enable them to contribute to their home communities and facilitate tribal development, while retaining close ties to their cultural heritage and identity.

Obiakor, Festus E. – Multicultural Learning and Teaching, 2011
The current trend in higher education appears to be a concerted effort to downplay racism as a fundamental educational problem. For some strange reason, educators appear willing to discuss all kinds of diversity and ignore racism even as it continues to matter in our daily interactions (Williams, 2011). Strangely, education professionals are quick…

Obi, Sunday – Multicultural Learning and Teaching, 2010
Experiences presented in this article suggest that the extension of U.S. citizenship or permanent residency to a foreign-born African American plays out itself as a product of an unequal relationship between the dominant American (White & Black) citizens and the subordinated, subjugated, colonized, and racialized foreign born African…

Mukuria, Gathogo M. – Multicultural Learning and Teaching, 2010
I came to this country with an open mind to pursue the American dream. It did not take me a long to recognize racial disparity as a student and even more so when I became a faculty member in various teacher preparation programs. While I try to evade discussion on race, it is inevitable to talk about it because it seems to be the criteria upon…
