Today's teachers experience diversity challenges within their curricula, schools, and school systems on a daily basis?yet most lack the knowledge to turn those challenges into positive outcomes that enrich learning and establish strong, inclusive classroom communities. DIVERSITY MATTERS offers proven, research-based strategies that will help teachers successfully navigate intercultural interactions to better meet the needs of all students?even those who previously may have been marginalized. An intellectual and emotional exploration of cultural diversity that covers current research and diverse case studies, DIVERSITY MATTERS takes teachers from understanding and valuing diversity to applying practical strategies that will ensure that every student feels like an integral part of the classroom.
