about

Jacklyn Blake Clayton challenges the notion of "tolerance" for cultural differencesa notion that implies resignation, passivity, superiorityand offers instead another challengeto understand the building blocks of all cultures. This understanding is the keystone that holds together a variety of world views and creates a more solid structure for meaningful interactions between teachers and students.

Each chapter of her book looks at an aspect of culture that affects the classroom: how children are socializedhow values can differ from culture to culturehow learning styles may be influencedhow verbal and nonverbal communication differ across cultureshow immigrant children acculturatehow the mainstream classroom in the United States has its own culture.Deftly combining theory and practice, Clayton incorporates into her book general suggestions for applying concepts to the classroom, plus numerous sections called "Try this!" with specific questions, prompts, or activities to promote inquiry and reflection.
