Description:

What is multicultural education? Why is it important in education today? The authors of Multicultural Teaching define multicultural education broadly to include all types of diversity as they generate an inclusive curriculum that meets the individual needs of each student. Bringing theory and practice together in a student-centered curriculum, they encourage reflection and discussion through working with Reflective Teaching Portfolios and Cooperative Learning Groups at the end of each chapter. The text is based on a strong model focusing on Esteem, Empathy, and Equity. Future teachers are guided to consider the implications of such topics as language diversity, the academic achievement gap, and racism as they plan lessons designed to develop a community of learners in their classroom.
