This paper uses three journal articles, three magazines and three books as information sources to research, examine and analyze how learning styles differ among various ethnic groups in American schools. The paper discusses how efforts are now being focused upon designing effective lesson plans and teaching styles which will complement the distinctive learning styles of ethnic groups such as Native-Americans, African-Americans, Asian-Americans, and Hispanic-Americans, and enable them to learn in the manner most suitable to their cultural heritage.
From the Paper:"Big city schools contain the highest numbers of ethnic minority students. Census studies have established that in the twenty-five largest urban school districts in the United States, ethnic minority students comprised seventy-two percent of the total school enrollment in 1994, and that trend is continuing to rise steadily as socioeconomic factors continue to compel poorer minority families to remain in America's inner cities while middle class families move away.
"Reflecting upon the significance of these demographics, it is especially troubling to admit that the American public school system has failed millions of its children, in part because educators have not responded very effectively to the fact that learning styles vary depending upon the ethnicity of the student. We continually hear reports about the disproportionality in achievement between American students of ethnic minorities and American students who are white, but there has been disagreement over why this seems
to be the case."
