The Development of Course Content: Teaching Child Development from a Multicultural Perspective. Focus on African American Children
This paper addresses the dominant view from which child development is currently taught, examining the impact of culture on the developing child and offering a rationale for shifting paradigms toward a more inclusive framework of instruction. The dominant framework presents child development from a middle class white, generally western, paradigm. Culture is an important contributor to child development. Many aspects of culture represent adaptation to the environment in which the group lives.
