Description: To succeed in increasingly diverse classrooms, tomorrowï¿½s special educators need explicit training on working effectively with all families. Prepare the next generation of teachers with this accessible text, developed by two highly respected experts on cultural and linguistic diversity and inclusive education.Ideal for use as a supplementary textbook in a wide range of courses related to special education, this book gives educators a practical framework for cultural reciprocityï¿½a process that helps professionals and families examine their own values, respect each otherï¿½s differences, and collaborate skillfully to benefit children. Educators will learn how toï¿½strengthen awareness of their own cultural identities and roles ï¿½explore how their values and beliefs might affect interactions with families ï¿½sidestep stereotypes by treating each family and situation as uniqueï¿½ensure successful IEP meetings through effective cross-cultural communicationï¿½avoid ï¿½right versus wrongï¿½ assumptions about parenting styles and practicesï¿½understand how diverse families might view key special education goalsï¿½combine ideas from different value systems to arrive at solutions that work for allï¿½challenge the ways in which mainstream culture shapes special education policies and practicesThe authors draw on their own experiences and research to describe applications of cultural reciprocity, including reader-friendly textboxes and memorable personal anecdotes. To give special educators a deeper, more nuanced understanding of cultural reciprocity, the text also includes three chapter-long case studies that further illustrate the process at work. Readers will learn from the challenges and successes of an African American researcher working with a group of teenage mothers; two teacher educators collaborating on the Special Educators Entering a Diverse Society (SEEDS) project; and an Asian Indian teacher educator leading a class of mostly Caucasian students.
