I Just Want to Be Myself: Discovering What  Students Bring to  School “in Their  Blood” By: Lisa Delpit
Image of page 2
Summary of the Reading Lisa Delpit does a wonderful job of relaying to us  as readers the importance of a child’s self-image  and both cultural and ethnical backgrounds. Some of the important points that Delpit makes  throughout are that:         Educators must recognize that children simply  want to be themselves. It is the educators  responsibility to try to understand what that “what”  is and encourage it. They must research about  different ethnic and cultural groups and

Summary Continued              Educators must realize that not all children  can be generalized or made to fit into one single  cultural norm.               Educators must first rid themselves of  stereotypes and personal bias’ that they have.  Unfortunately people can make huge assumptions  about others based on stereotypes that they have  developed throughout their lives, even if they are  not aware that they are doing it.               Educators must then vigilantly fight

Summary Continued     Delpit says it best when she states that:            If we plan to survive as a species on this  planet, we must certainly create multicultural  curricula that educate our children to the  differing perspectives of our diverse  population .”             Meaning that we must not simply teach  others about other cultures but rather incorporate  current representatives of that culture. Bring people  of diverse culture into our lessons and allow

Summary Continued  Educators must not merely take courses that tell  them how to treat their students as multicultural  clients, that is, those that tell them how to identify  differences in interactional or communicative  strategies and remediate appropriately. They must  also learn about the brilliance the students bring  with them “in their blood” as stated by Delpit.   We must realize that every child has a different  history running through their veins that extend  from both parents and their heritage. As educators,  it is our responsibility to look beyond our own

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
