Discussion: Video Reflection (Separate from Assignment: Ethnicity and Race) The video segment, Acting White discusses how some African American students have attributed academic achievement to “acting white.” They attack achieving students for excelling in school, speaking Standard English, listening to the wrong music or having white friends. They see academic achievers as being traitors or disloyal to their race. By adopting values common to the dominant culture, these students are seen as tying to ignore their own racial history and experiences. As a result, many African American and Latino students do not study as hard as European American students and do not choose the more challenging classes. Write a discussion post responding to the following questions: Is this the way we want to see our future society?
As an educational leader, how could such a situation impact your school community?
What steps could an educational leader employ to prevent such a situation?

The success of the school is dependent upon the positive culture and climate of the school which represents a wide-range of culturally, racially, and socioeconomically diverse community. Although the student population reflects a wide-range of students, the school has been academically successful and has been recognized as a model school in the city. The school community is supportive of your efforts, which promotes multiculturalism. The students view the school as their second home; student achievement and attendance is the highest in the district. The superintendent, who is new to the district, has been invited to present at the National Middle School Conference for Educational Leaders, based upon the successes in your school. She asks you to accompany her for keynote presentation titled; Promoting a Positive Culture and Climate in a Multicultural Environment. In this assignment, please share the PowerPoint presentation you will use at the conference. The presentation should illustrate the effective strategies you have implemented in the school which are attributed to the school’s success. In addition, the superintendent requests a paper sharing your researched-based strategies, approach and techniques implemented in the school, so she can understand you successful strategies. As a guide, your presentation should include; but is not limited to the following: Introduction
