MATTERS OF THE HEART: UNDERSTANDING RACIAL INTERPRETATIONS & CULTURAL PERCEPTIONS IN THE CLASSROOM FOR AFRICAN AMERICAN STUDENTS

2014, Doctor of Philosophy, Miami University, Educational Leadership.
This paper is a qualitative study on the influence of race and culture in the instructional planning within classrooms in a suburban school district. The study was designed using a focus group of teachers in grades 4-8 who demonstrated successful growth for African American students using value added measures on state assessments. The focus group members met to answer pre-determined research questions that tied to exploring the role of race and culture in the classroom. The group met regularly over a period of time and conducted discussions centered around activities to help generate reflective thinking on instructional pedagogy. The paper also presents limitations to the study and directions for future research.
