Abstract

This case study researched the changing demographics in schools throughout the country, the impact of No Child Left Behind legislation the diverse students, and what research says about white teachers in diverse classrooms. Six teachers read the book White Teachers/Diverse Classrooms by Julie Landsman and Chance Lewis (2006) and viewed the companion DVD in conjunction with several cultural collaborative activities. The ultimate goal was a call to action for white teachers in diverse classrooms. Personal examination and reflection on white privilege was encouraged. The results indicated that teachers came away with positive perceptions of teaching in diverse classrooms through culturally relevant pedagogy.
