Guidelines for Closing the Black-White Cultural Gap
"Reading this book is like talking with a trusted friend about serious and sensitive issues.Dr. Thompson has provided a real service for teachers and everyone else who cares about the success of African American students."-Diane F. Halpern, director, Berger Institute for Work, Family, and Children andprofessor of psychology, Claremont McKenna College
"For those teachers, administrators, and researchers who deal with culturally sensitive issues, Through Ebony Eyes is a powerful tool. Gail Thompson writes with passion and authority on teachers' beliefs and attitudes regarding African American students, and how these affect their instructional practices and achievement. Her research and observations are insightful, and her recommendations essential."-James P. Comer, M.D., Maurice Falk Professor of Child Psychiatry, Yale Child Study Center, associate dean, School of Medicine
"Thompson does not tiptoe around issues that are sensitive for most educators, such as the controversy over Ebonics versus Standard English, and the continued controversy surrounding the use of the 'N word' by African-American students . . . . For those teachers, researchers, and administrators who want to deal with culturally sensitive issues, this is a very important tool." --Multicultural Review
"By effectively melding theory and practice, this book offers professionals and parents a guide toward understanding African American cultures and background. Thompson is an effective cultural translator; her research and knowledge base rely on a triangulation of effective theory, proven practices, and common sense. Highly recommended." --Choice
