The five articles in this document provide a diverse look at the influence of cultural factors in classrooms and schools. In the first article, "The Cultural Identification of Students in Bilingual Classrooms," M. Beatriz Arias discusses particularly the heterogeneous cultural identification of Anglo and Mexican American students in California. In the second article, "Racial Prejudice and Its Relationships...," Thomas C. Denne, J. William Moore and William E. Hauck examine a multitude of variables such as race, grade, and sex, and compile correlations relating racial prejudice to personality variables. In "A Bicultural Approach to the Issue of Achievement Motivation," Tracy C. Gray examines and compares achievement motivation in Mexican American and Anglo elementary school children. In the fourth article, "Variables Affecting the Intellectual Performance of Black and White Children," James E. Savage and Philip Friedman review the effects of race and sex of examiner on test results. In the final article, "Ethic Group Bias in Intelligence Test Items," Janice Scheuneman presents a definition and discusses what is suggested by the title. Each article is followed by a critical analysis. (Author/EB)
