Example text

One of the sixth,g;rade teachers had served in the Army with my father. Most importantly, the teachers knew our families and had a sense of their dreams and aspirations for us. 8 THE DREAMKEEPERS Let us suppose that the legal, moral, and ethical concerns about special separate schools could either be suspended or reconciled with the American ideal of equality. Let us further suppose that every major urban center with a large number of African American students would set about developing separate schools for these children.

The meeting takes place in the teachers' lounge where other teachers in the school are able to hear everything said. At one point in the discussion the cooperating teacher, who is regarded as one of the district's finest, tells the student teacher that she will have to be especially careful to recognize that there are two types of black students in the school. " The white,blacks are easy to deal with because they come from "good" homes and have "white" values. But the black,blacks are less capable aca, demically and have behavior problems.

When one practices pedagogy, one acts with the intent of creating experiences that will organize and disorganize a variety of understandings of our natural and social world in particular ways. .. " I wanted to see not only why a certain kind of teaching helped the students to be more successful academically but also how this kind of teaching supported and encouraged students to use their prior knowledge to make sense of the world and to work toward improving it. In the next chapter, I begin to examine the concept of culturally relevant teaching and how it can improve the educational lives of African American students.
