Description:

Designed as a supplemental text for foundations, multicultural education, and general methods courses. This book contains concise, focused cases about genuine classroom situations regarding issues of diversity/multiculturalism which immediately engage students and allow greater flexibility for instructors. The book can be used in two ways: 1) to create in students a need to know about definitions of concepts, research, promising practice, and theory, and 2) to extend thinking about basic concepts. The approach of the text is consistent with the trend toward constructivism in teacher education; a trend in which teachers are invited to become active inquirers in their work in schools.
