The Knowledge Construction Process
"The knowledge construction process relates to the extent to which teachers help students to
understand, investigate, and determine how the implicit cultural assumptions, frames of references,
perspectives, and biases within a discipline influence the ways in which knowledge
is constructed within it" (Banks, An introduction to multicultural education, 2002, p. 14).
