An Introduction to Multicultural Education
In this succinct, yet comprehensive book, leading authority James A. Banks gives readers a forward-reaching look toward increasing their understanding of what multicultural education means for classroom teaching in contemporary classrooms. Here he explores the concepts, principles, theories, and practices of multicultural education in such key areas as: the goals and misconceptions of multicultural education; citizenship education and diversity in a global age; curriculum transformation; curriculum reform; and, school reform and intergroup education. Included are checklists for evaluating informational materials and evaluating multicultural education. An Introduction to Multicultural Education is ideal for pre-service and practicing educators who require a concrete approach but have little time to devote to the topic.
