Within the covers of this book you will discover the challenges faced by minority students who have elected to take an online college class. The data indicates that students whose first language is not standard English experience a rhetorical challenge in an online learning setting that has been designed for students who learn best in a linear, text-based, independent setting. The development of the online class will be investigated, and the implications for the online instructor will be considered.

How does an online instructor identify ethnic minority students in the online classroom? What are the differences in the learning styles of different ethnic minorities? What pedagogical adjustments need to be implemented in order to promote student agency? These are a few of the questions that are addressed in Pedagogy and Practice: A Multi-modal Approach for a Multi-ethnic Online Classroom.

If you are looking to better understand the rhetorical challenges faced by minority students as you design and implement an online class, then this book is for you. You will gain insight into why some of your minority students struggle in their online classes, and how you can help reduce or eliminate some of these struggles by incorporating a multi-modal approach into your online pedagogy.
