The purpose of this article is to present a classroom exercise and corresponding discussion for educators to use when teaching critical thinking skills to undergraduate students. The exercise involves applying critical thinking conccpts/questions offered by Browne and Keeley (2004) to a contemporary discussion about parenting issues among some African-American families.

Karen D. Johnson-Webb The Role of Migration, Family Characteristics and English-Language Ability in Latino Academic Achievement
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
Latinos comprise the largest minority group in the U.S. and 63 percent are foreign-born. An educational gap exists between Latinos in the U.S. and other groups in the U.S. Lower educational attainment has ramifications for labor market and other socioeconomic outcomes. Factors involving family context have best explained the educational gap, along with English proficiency and migration history. This study, using the Census long-form data, explores the role of socio-economic background, ethnicity, and migration history on educational outcomes of Latinos in the Midwest, an area that is experiencing recent growth in its Latino population. Results indicate that these factors do impinge negatively on academic achievement of Latino and Non-Hispanic black youth. In order to be more effective in alleviating the achievement gap, multicultural education must not only incorporate culture and inclusion, but also a true understanding of the factors and circumstances that impact youth achievement and how these impact achievement.

Jennifer A. Michalenok Transformative Resistance Through Critical Literacy: Where are the Special Educators?
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
The aim of this article is to bring together critical literacy or critical thinking and special education. Guided by Paulo Freire’s diligent work and my desire to work with inner-city students with special needs, my interest is twofold: first, to investigate the different ways in which inner-city youth can use critical literacy practices to have voice and affect personal and social change and, second, explore how critical literacy is connected to democratic principles essential to the foundation of progressive and transformative education for students with special need.
