This practical supplemental text allows pre-service and practicing teachers with even the most limited background knowledge about multicultural and global education to apply that knowledge in their classrooms, schools, and communities. The introductory chapter gives a general background review of multicultural and global education concepts and discusses the importance of teachers becoming involved in transforming their educational practice. The next six chapters investigate the classroom elements of teacher, students, environment, curriculum, instructions, and assessment for ways to apply multicultural and global concepts. The final two chapters take readers beyond the classroom into the school and community. The text's comprehensive and multi-dimensional approach to applying multicultural and global concepts helps pre-service and in-service teachers transform their practice into culturally relevant teaching.
