More Description

As our nation's population becomes more culturally, ethnically and racially diverse, the challenge of multicultural education has become essential. Yet many of our nation's schools, hampered by societal policies, shortage of funds, and lack of understanding, have not yet risen to this challenge to become multicultural in vision and practice. In response to this void, this book helps educators to understand multicultural education, to implement multicultural education across the curriculum, and to approach controversial topics like prejudice, racism, social justice and cultural pluralism. This book is based on the premise that teachers must understand and value students' individual differences for each student to reach his or her full potential. The author also offers vignettes of teachers and students she has known over the years to bring the discussion and subject matter "to life." Topics covered include: the connections between multicultural concepts, classroom practices and curriculum development, the understanding of students' cultural and individual differences, and the connection between multicultural and global education. Classroom teachers and administrators.
