In Teaching for Diversity (Third Edition), Ricardo Garcia argues that increasing student diversity in classrooms across North America places two imperatives on educators: they must learn effective strategies for teaching diverse groups of students, and they must integrate skills for accepting and thriving in diverse groups into their teaching. He moves from a broad overview of the history of schooling and attitudes toward diversity in education to a specific treatment of today¿s schools¿ needs and objectives. This resource employs both theory and concrete examples to construct a vision of schools as the foundation for an inclusive, democratic society.
