Dr. Campbell's ability to use his own experiences is a great asset to helping the reader relate to what he is trying to accomplish. I applaud his efforts to get teachers to see that their efforts to work together to accomplish a positive environment rather than being uncooperative among each other is more beneficial to our educational system as well. If there are racial issues among the staff, there is certain to be even more among the students and in the teacher-student interactions.
I believe Dr. Campbell's book embraces much more than just racial issues among students and teachers and highly recommend it to parents as well as any educational staff member. Getting a different perspective on a situation is always beneficial.
Dr. Campbell provides definitive studies and research theories to substantiate his beliefs. He offers answers to the problems that have existed for decades both in interracial interactions and between teachers and students in general. To teach all students effectively, teachers must learn to decrease discipline and create an atmosphere of learning for all students.
I highly recommend this book to anyone involved in education.
I was particularly impressed with the Mr. Campbell's usage of specific instances where his work created a positive environment. For instance, he talks about a teacher who sat down with a student who had been assigned detention. After discussing the matter, the teacher realized that he/she had been wrong in assigning detention, and they resolved the issue by talking through it. If only every teacher-student interaction could be resolved in this manner!
All in all, a very impressive piece of work and a must-have in the classroom.
The challenges of being an educator have greatly increased over time. There are numerous aspects to consider in achieving the best education for all students. Promoting Positive Racial Teacher-Student Classroom Relationships by Derrick L. Campbell is an excellent source for strengthening the relationships between educators and their students of different races. Also, many of the principles discussed could relate too many of the problems found with all student/teacher relationships. The author shows with extensive research and studies ways to promote a better educational environment and reduced disciple. The students responded with positive behaviors. Any teacher would benefit by reading this book and applying it to his or her classroom. It is well written, easy to follow and the author backs up all his claims. I also liked that he included room at the back to take notes and jot to jot down answers to questions he presents.
