A. According to Ladson-Billings (2004), the Critical Race Theory (CRT) “argues against the slow pace of racial reform in the United States begins with the notion that racism is normal in American society” (p.7). This theory argues that Whites have been the primary beneficiaries of civil rights legislation and this has resulted in school inequity (has affected the daily experiences of students of color). Adopting CRT as a framework for educational equity will result in talking about, exposing, and proposing solutions for the reoccurring problems of race, racism, and social injustice in schools and classrooms. The many History courses I have through my academic career have embedded the idea that ALL students, no matter their language, color,
Teachers in multicultural classrooms must be open to their students and put forth the effort needed to get to know their students both inside and outside of class. In a society that is creating increasingly diverse classrooms, teachers are more likely to encounter
Diversity is a range of different things. Failing to consider cultural differences in the classroom could lead to cultural isolation, cultural erosion, learning problems, behavioral problem and/ or conflicts. Differences in cultures in the classroom therefore do have an influence on classroom management. So as an educator I need to be knowledgeable about the various factors that may impact on the way I teach and how to respond to learners from different cultural background in the classroom situation, increase my cultural knowledge. So I have to use teaching strategies that are inclusive of students from cultural diverse background.
Teachers serve as a role model and authorial adult figure early in a student’s life. Having a teacher of color can go a long way into being able to relate to the daily struggles that a student of color goes through, while helping give perspective to the mass onto a better cultural understanding of the growing diverse world around them. But quite frankly, there is no immediate way to equalize the amount of teachers of color proportionate of students of color. In order to do so, “[c]losing the diversity gap (we
There might be a classroom that has all sorts of different cultural backgrounds represented all in one place and it is important to be able to recognize that. I believe that a teacher should be able to recognize their students different cultural lens so that they are more effective in their teachings of that student. A teacher should be able to see how their students are comprehending the material at hand for every cultural background represented in that class. It is also extremely important that the student has a different cultural lens than they do and may view the world in a completely different way. I believe that it is important for a teacher to recognize this and insure that the student is never uncomfortable in the classroom and that that student understands the material and the way the teacher is trying to deliver the material to them.
This results in a beautiful hybrid of empirical data, theory, and fascinating narratives that works to analyze how forms of subordination shape the Chicana/o pipeline, while also exposing how institutions, structures, and discourses of education maintain discrimination based on gender, race, class and their intersections. Ideally schools would provide equal education and opportunities for all children, but in reality racism, sexism, classism, and other forms of discrimination still exist, albeit more hidden, in our schools today. Rather than stressing academic enrichment, the elementary schools that Chicanas/os attend to focus on academic remediation and a deceleration of the curriculum. The primary curriculum itself generally excludes or minimizes Chicana/o experiences, while also reinforcing
Purpose of the research The research has some objectives or aims. The research would analyze the perception of teachers in teaching special needs children along with other students. The research would also consider the hurdles teachers may face in incorporating differentially able along with other students. The research would also find out the benefits of inclusive education for Special needs children. The research will discuss the factors that enable teachers to incorporate special needs children into mainstream school.
“Still, many African American students will walk into classrooms and be discreetly taught in most cases, and explicitly told in others, that the language of their forefathers, their families, and their communities is bad language, street language, the speech of the ignorant and/or uneducated. They will be “corrected”… (Hollie, 2001, 54). For reasons like the one mentioned in the previous quote teachers must recognize Ebonics as another language, and treat African Americans who present this type of speech similarly to that of Bilingual students. According to Hollie, bilingual students have been shown to score higher than African Americans who speak Ebonics, because these students are recognized as having another language and will receive a form of education constructed to fit their needs (Hollie, 2001, 57). In all, Ebonics is another form of language spoken by a wide range of primarily African Americans, and because of the justified changes in their speech these student must be recognized under the term of being ELLs to insure they receive exceptional learning and avoid
5). The first argument is the preparation of students for working life in a society that is increasingly IT oriented. However, due to the rapid change in IT, the equipment and software that today 's school student’s use would be quite different from those they will use when they enter the work force! The second argument asserts that the use of IT in education will introduce students and teachers to a new paradigm of learning where information literacy, problem solving and knowledge transfer are valued far more than the knowledge itself. I believe the second argument to be more acceptable to educational practitioners.
CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION 1.0 BACKGROUND Generally, teachers should always find new and interesting teaching strategies to teach in order to attract students’ attention towards lesson. Borich (2014) said that teaching practices in twentieth century has changed due to association with all kinds of concepts and teaching practices. For instance, the concept of effective teaching by effective teachers, numerous teachers’ beliefs and perceptions on teaching, related education and training for teachers have been introduced to make sure teachers are equipped with necessary skills for the betterment of teachers’ teaching performance. Due to high expectation from senior teachers, pre-service teacher will have to create fun yet meaningful lessons to
