Notes from California: An Anthropological Approach to Urban Science Education for Language Minority Families

Describes a unique and ongoing collaboration involving a team of bilingual/multicultural teacher-educators, preservice teachers, teachers, students, and community members in an urban California elementary school. Uses critical ethnography as a framework and focuses on building an American garden house to show how, by drawing on participants' funds of knowledge, a new kind of multiscience can emerge. (Contains 20 references.) (Author/YDS)
