Additional resources for classroom use
Weinstein et al., Culturally Responsive Classroom Management: Awareness Into Action (pp. 269-276)
1. Ballenger, C. (1999). Teaching other people’s children: Literacy and learning in a bilingual classroom. NY: Teachers College Press.
Ballenger, an experienced preschool teacher, shares the challenges she encounters as a White, middle-class teacher in an all-Haitian preschool. Of particular interest is Chapter 4, in which Ballenger describes her efforts to understand the management problems she is experiencing and her decision to adopt Haitian discourse style in order to solve the problem of disorder in her classroom.
2. Gay, G. (2000). Culturally responsive teaching: Theory, research, and practice. New York: Teachers College Press.
Gay explains the concept of culturally responsive teaching and discusses how it can improve the school performance of underachieving students of color. Among the topics she includes are the power of teacher caring, the importance of ethnic and cultural diversity in curriculum content, and the relationship between culture and communication.
3. Grossman, H. (1995). Classroom behavior management in a diverse society (2nd ed.). Mountain View, CA: Mayfield Publishing Co.
In this comprehensive text on classroom management, Grossman emphasizes ways to prevent behavior problems from occurring, group management strategies for resolving problems, and strategies for helping individual students with particular problems. Throughout the text, he highlights ways of working with students from varied cultural, ethnic, racial, socioeconomic, and linguistic backgrounds.
4. Tolerance.org web site www.tolerance.org
A web project of the Southern Poverty Law Center, Tolerance.org encourages teachers, parents, teenagers, and children to “fight hate and promote tolerance.” Includes a link to Teaching Tolerance, a semi-annual magazine that presents innovative, useful strategies and is available free of charge to teachers.
Delpit and White-Bradley, Educating or Imprisoning the Spirit: Lessons From Ancient Egypt (pp. 283-288)
1. Miner, B. (1998). Embracing Ebonies and teaching standard English: An interview with Oakland teacher Carrie Secret. In T. Perry & L. Delpit (Eds.), The real Ebonics debate: Power, language, and the education of African-American children. Boston: Beacon Press.
Written in the author’s own words, this article describes the work of a gifted African American teacher who uses African culture and heritage to teach her low-income African American students in Oakland California. Secret’s students consistently score in the top 10% of all students on standardized tests. Both her content and strategies are steeped in African philosophy. Also available at www.rethinkingschools.org.
2. Hilliard, A. (1998). SBA: The reawakening of the African mind. Gainesville, FL: Makare Publishers.
Hilliard’s work is the premier source for understanding both Ma’at and more generalized African philosophical views of education and their connection to today’s classrooms. With a discussion of Ma’at, African healers, and African thought, Hilliard explains that to ensure success for African American students, the goal of education must be to live up to African cultural principles and values.
3. Hilliard, A. (2002). African power: Affirming African indigenous socialization in the face of the culture wars. Gainesville, FL: Makare Publishing
This fine text is a call to socialize African children within an African cultural context in face of mainstream cultural ideals that threaten to destroy them. Education can only be sound if children are socialized into valuing and building themselves and their community.
McLaughlin and Bryan, Learning From Rural Mexican Schools About Commitment and Work (pp. 289-295)
1. Ballenger, C. (1995). Because you like us: The language of control. Harvard Educational Review, 62(2), 199-208.
Ballenger’s fine article tells a story of her work with Haitian children in an elementary school classroom. She was struggling with her students’ poor behavior and decided to talk with Haitian teachers’ aides and parents. From them she learned a valuable cultural lesson: that positive social control was created when she appealed to students’ sense of right and wrong, predicated on a higher authority (the family, the church, a spiritual belief). The article is a tonic reminder that seeking advice from people who are culturally linked to one’s students can change perceptions and actions.
2. Charney, R.S. (1997). Habits of goodness: Case studies in the social curriculum. Greenfield, MA: Northeast Foundation for Children.
This is one of a number of books published by the Northeast Foundation, a fine source of materials about the social curriculum, particularly in elementary schools. The case studies in the book were authored by teachers and contain engaging and practical examples for educators. Brief examples of classroom and school-wide social work can be found in Responsive Classroom, the organization’s journal aimed at integrating social and academic skills.
3. Lickona, T. (1991). Educating for character: How our schools can teach respect and responsibility. New York: Bantam Books.
Lickona went on the road to visit teachers around the country and his book offers scores of real-life stories about how teachers and schools promote respect and responsibility, the keystones of “character.” Although the book does not include much information about students’ jobs in school, it does devote one chapter to the “quality of craft,” which focuses on ways to help students develop a good work ethic. This text is still one of the best resources for developing strategies, such as class meetings (to develop social control) and contracts with students (to develop self control).
McCarthy and Benally, Classroom Management in a Navajo Middle School (pp. 296-304)
1. Armstrong, N.M. (1994). Navajo long walk. Lanham, MD: Roberts, Rinehart.
This is a nicely illustrated chapter book about a young boy’s experiences on the Navajo Long Walk and the survival skills he learned from the experienced.
2. McCarty. T. (2002). A place to be Navajo. Mahwah, NJ: Erlbaum.
This book is a great account of a school developed in a Navajo community to transmit cultural values and language to the next generation. An inspiring look at the struggles and triumphs of the endeavor written by someone immersed in the experience.
3. O’Dell, S. (1970). Sing down the moon. New York: Dell Laurel-Leaf.
This is an extremely popular book with middle school students. It tells the story of young Navajos and their experiences on their forced march from their homes in the Canyon de Chelly in Arizona to Fort Sumner in New Mexico. The text gives a good overview of the history of the Navajo in the 1800s and the dramatic changes brought about in their lives with the arrival of the Spaniards and White soldiers and settlers.
Norris, Looking at Classroom Management Through a Social and Emotional Learning Lens (pp. 313-318)
1. Charney, R.S. (1992). Teaching children to care: Management in the responsive classroom. Greenfield, MA: Northeastern Foundation for Children.

2. Elias, M.J., Tobias, S.E., & Friedlander, B.S. (1999). Emotionally intelligent parenting. New York: Harmony Books. and Elias, M.J., Tobias, S.E., & Friedlander, B.S. (2002). Raising emotionally intelligent teenagers: Guiding the way for compassionate, committed, courageous adults. New York: Three Rivers Press.
Because schools cannot do it alone, nor should they, these books specifically address students’ first teachers. In these pages parents gain knowledge and learn skills and techniques that can easily be translated to the home. Listening skills, impulse control, decision making and problem solving are taught in a practical, light-hearted manner that gets results.

4. Lieber, C.M., Lantieri, L., & Roderick, T. (1998). Conflict resolution in the high School: 36 lessons. Cambridge, MA: Educators for Social Responsibility.
There are hundreds of workbooks available to elementary school teachers that provide ready to-teach lessons for the classroom. This is an excellent resource for teachers of older students. Of course, my recommendation would be to read the lessons and initially teach them as the social skills and then adapt the strategies to academic content for ongoing practice and reinforcement.
Wentzel, Motivating Students to Behave in Socially Competent Ways (pp. 319-326)
