from last week s class survey what is the meaning of being colorblind in your approach to teaching
From last week’s Class Survey What is the meaning of being colorblind in your approach to teaching?

Define Colorblind: Can be thought of several ways.

  • As a positive: Not to be prejudiced. Not to see color as a negative status. Not to see white as superior. Not to treat students any differently because of their color. Some said that people “Just pretend not to see color.”
  • As an absolute: Everyone is just the same, no differences.
  • As a negative: Ignore facts of life, not recognizing the significance of race in society and that people are treated differently because of skin color, so that you ignore people’s ethnicity, part of their identity and their differences in life experiences.
from last week s class survey what is the meaning of being colorblind in your approach to teaching4
From last week’s Class Survey What is the meaning of being colorblind in your approach to teaching?
  • Should teachers be colorblind?

“Are they treating everyone as white?”

    • Equally SPLIT!! YES and NO, and many BOTH
    • Don’t want to be discriminatory OR wanted to be sensitive.
  • Should teachers modify the curriculum or teaching approaches?
    • Overwhelming YES, you are aware of different learning styles, differences in school experiences, impact of the context of students’ lives.
ladson billings suggests that all of us learn and understand through cultural filters
Ladson-Billings suggests that all of us learn and understand through cultural filters.

RECOGNIZING CULTURE AS PART OF THE PROCESS OF LEARNING

Recognize the role that culture plays in how we see the world.

“The way we read the world is culturally mediated.”

Know thyself, and understand others.

slide7

If you are mainstream, your cultural filter is mainstream—and your learning filter is mainstream, but doesn’t appear to be filtered, it’s just “normal”.

what does this statement mean to you
What does this statement mean to you?

Ladson-Billings believes that culturally relevant teaching does not represent a kind of separatism, reverse racism, or special privileges to the African American community, but rather compares culturally relevant teaching to middle-class demands on schools to serve their communities.

culturally relevant teachers goals for all students
Culturally Relevant Teachers Goals for All Students
  • Academic achievement
    • Willing to figure out how to promote academic success for all.
  • Maintaining and supporting cultural competence.
    • Different cultures are respected, seen as having assets, not viewed negatively, and nurtured along with the teaching of mainstream culture for success.
  • Fostering a sense of sociopolitical critique.
    • Acknowledge injustices, discrimination, need for change in school, the neighborhood and the larger community.
slide10

Ladson-Billings conducted a one year study of 8 of the most successful teachers in minority schools. What was the cultural reference of the 8 teachers in her study? 5 Black 3 White

8 teachers

  • All 5 African American teachers demonstrated close cultural reference with the African American community
  • 1 white teacher had a bicultural orientation
  • 1 white teacher had a African American orientation
  • 1 white teacher had a white cultural reference BUT in school sought out African American teachers and encouraged students to share their cultural background in the classroom.

Cultural reference means--the cultural group that the teacher most closely identified with, who were her friends inside and outside of school, what kinds of social activities did she participate in, which neighborhood and communities did she frequent.

what does ladson billings mean by the term dysconsciousness in your readings
What does Ladson Billings mean by the term “dysconsciousness”?In your readings…..

Dysconsciousness means, as teachers we recognize privilege of some children and the disadvantage for other children, but we fail to challenge the status quo, or accept given as inevitable (LB, 32).

Critical Pedagogy (Critical Theorists) Do not accept present structure as inevitable. (Tozer, Chapter 13)

culturally relevant teachers demonstrate broad understandings of
Culturally Relevant Teachers demonstrate broad understandings of:
  • Conceptions of themselves and others.
    • Recognize that culture impacts everyone’s learning.
  • Conceptions of social relations.
    • Like Michie, Dewey and Freire, social relations impact motivation, why were learn, interpretations, community.
  • Conceptions of knowledge.
    • Like Michie, Dewey and Freire, knowledge is constructed, useful, changing, linked to experiences.
what are the views of michie and ladson billings about the culture of minority students
What are the views of Michie and Ladson-Billingsabout the culture of minority students?

Researchers conclude that students are less likely to fail in school if they feel positive about their culture and majority culture. (Ladson-Billings, 11)

Pluralist Approach to CurriculumExample of recent changes in how English, history, and science are taught. More inclusive of diverse experiences, but still room for improvement.

Latino Dropouts ”Breaking the Pattern” 4-26-05You can stream this story from our syllabus or on Lehrer News Hour site: http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/education/jan-june05/dropouts_4-26.html 5 minutes

“Poverty doesn’t cause dropouts.”

  • “Schools don’t inspire Hispanic students.” These students usually get the:
    • Least qualified teachers
    • Feel disrespected by school
    • Least enriched curriculum
  • We already know a lot about how to create successful intervention programs, like AVID, BRIDGE, THE FOUNDARY.
  • These special programs are being cut as schools experience economic problems and pressures to focus on high stakes testing

and practices that promote fairness and quality education

For example:

to reduce tracking in schools that limits assess to high status knowledge (rich academic curriculum for all students)

to limit points of competition for scarce resources (allow students to take high level courses)

to limit negative messages about the students’ capacity to learn.

slide19

No simple recipe Culturally Relevant Teachers According to Ladson-Billings***Two pages in Chapter 13 See Tozer page 430 and 431 “Education that is multicultural and social reconstructionist”Emphasis is on WHAT and HOW we teach.

Believe that knowledge is like the Freirean notion of MINING OR PULLING KNOWLEDGE OUT, not putting knowledge in like banking.

Assist students in making connections between their local, national, racial, global identities.

Understands that knowledge is not static, but recreate knowledge through inquiry-based learning that addresses students’ reality.

Create a curriculum that is culturally-based (meaningful to their lives [school knowledge is currently linked to norms and values of mainstream culture].
