Dear Dr. Freeman:

I want you to know how pleased we were with your presentation, Diversity: The Value of Mutual Respect, which was presented at our Multicultural Training Observance in Dallas, Texas on May 22, 2002.

Employees (300) who participated in both sessions of your presentation were nearly unanimous in their assessment of its relevance and value. Your approach to viewing diversity as a multi-layer phenomenon was unique. And your ability to relate to a multi-racial, multi-cultural and multi-generational audience, and keep the participants attentive throughout your presentation was a major contributor to your success. A major benefit of your presentation is it offered to those in attendance a unique framework for assessing their basic beliefs about living and working in a multicultural society, and provided us a point of departure for additional discussions about the benefits of mutual respect in the workplace and the larger community.

I am happy we were able to bring you to Dallas as a part of our Multicultural Training effort. Your presentation was the "meat and potatoes" of what we regarded as a very successful training.

Ten Factors Essential to Success in Urban Classrooms

 1. Do not teach less content to poor, urban children, but understand their brilliance and teach more.
 2. Whatever methodology or instructional program is used, demand critical thinking.
 3. Assure that all children gain access to "basic skills," the conventions and strategies that are essential to 
     success in American education.
 4. Challenge racist societal views of the competence and worthiness of the children and their families, and 
     help them to do the same.
 5. Recognize and build on strengths.
 6. Use familiar metaphors and experiences from the children's world to connect what they already know to 
     school knowledge.
 7. Create a sense of family and caring in the service of academic achievement.
 8. Monitor and assess needs and then address them with a wealth of diverse strategies.
 9. Honor and respect the children's home and ancestral culture(s).
 10. Foster a sense of children's connection to community - to something greater than themselves.
