Overview

A dissertation for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Education, How to Become a More Effective Teacher of Minority Students draws on the extensive research and twenty-three years of experience of Dr. Azel C. Colston Jr. He postulates that, with the correct strategies and emotional investment by the teacher, children can "actualize and maximize their potential."

Teachers should facilitate their students' achievement by becoming interested in the community around the school, encouraging parents to become engaged in their child's success, and by offering a diverse and hands-on classroom experience that encourages creativity and learning.
