About this item

This volume contains 21 chapters contributed by education and other specialists from the US, Australia, South America, and South Africa, who detail practices that support the use of intercultural communication and culturally responsive pedagogy in educational and community settings. They address planning and conducting a culturally responsive workshop to meet the needs of Mexican mothers in early childhood literacy learning programs in the US; teacher perspectives on students from diverse cultural backgrounds; a culturally consonant approach to character education for students of color; classroom environments that take into account students' homeostatic drives and states of equilibrium in learning; curriculum on culture in teacher education; a university-high school partnership for English language arts; a school-home interactive curriculum for Spanish/English dual language immersion; and public library services and programs for Mexican mothers of children in US public schools. Others discuss teaching practices in Brazil for young children; ethical and cultural considerations for behavioral services for children with autism; the need for valid and reliable secondary-level vocabulary instruction; connecting migrant families in the US and Mexico after separation; the use of Allport's intergroup contact hypothesis for freshmen working with a West African community; the perspective of an African-American teacher educator working with pre-service teachers in culturally responsive practices; higher education placements and internships in South Africa; cross-cultural communication in the experiential humanities; study abroad, service learning, and cultural sensitivity; and constructivist-based and learning style responsive pedagogy.
