Reclaiming Our Way promoting the well-being of African American children & families


Educating African American and Latino Students

Just came across an article this evening that was posted on Huffington Post's Black Voices page last Friday.  In the article, Twelve Tips All Educators Must Know About Educating African American and Latino Students, Quasson Castro highlights 12 considerations for educators to keep in mind when teaching African American and Latino students.

It's a quick read, and can serve as an introduction to basic diversity and cultural competence discussions for teachers of students who are of a different racial/ethnic background.

The twelve considerations...

  • Check stereotypes
  • Connect with parents
  • Cultural images
  • Identity
  • Motivation
  • Enthusiasm
  • After school programs
  • Value of education and real life
  • Forgive
  • Model appropriate behavior and Dress for success
  • Suspension
  • Classroom format

Worth the quick read.
