  1. On page 8 of the book excerpt "Perceiving and Responding to Differences," Gonzalez-Mena asks the following question: Why is transformative education a better approach than simple parent education in the face of cultural differences?" Consider what you have learned about transformative education from this reading and then respond to the author's question considering not only parent education but your own education as well.

  2. The author of your text, Patricia Ramsey, calls on adults to develop a "critical consciousness" (Ramsey, 2015, p. 18). In your own words, explain what this means and why it is important?
