* Cultural Inquiry Process: Resources *

Resources were identified, reviewed and compiled
by Dianne Battle and Kristin Percy Calaff

As you follow the Cultural Inquiry Process, you may find it helpful to locate resources related to specific characteristics of the student(s) or resources on specific school subjects and cultural influences. The following resources have been compiled to assist you in locating such information.  Each of these sites has been screened using specific criteria for Evaluating Web Sites. Take the Tutorial on Using Resources in the Cultural Inquiry Process to help you select among the resources listed here, locate additional relevant resources, and integrate your information within your inquiry.

Changes to ERIC: The Educational Resources Informational Center (ERIC) website will be restructured during 2004. If a CIP Resource link does not function, notify Evelyn Jacob at ejacob@gmu.edu.
