Teaching Young Children in Multicultural Classrooms: Issues, Concepts, and Strategies
In TEACHING YOUNG CHILDREN IN MULTICULTURAL CLASSROOMS: ISSUES, CONCEPTS, AND STRATEGIES, 3rd Edition the authors share their own experiences as both immigrants and instructors to present historical, theoretical, political, and sociological aspects of multicultural education as it relates to young children. The text provides practical guidelines, curriculum suggestions, and techniques for use in the classroom. This third edition includes updated content on demographics, children with special needs, and children's book lists. Readers will also follow Barbara, a kindergarten teacher, through the chapters to see how she handles the dilemmas and issues that arise in her day-to-day work. The authors have worked to address the very fluid nature of terminology and trends within the field. A portfolio experience based on INTASC (Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium) standards is included to help students make the important connection between what they are reading and how the content applies in a classroom setting. In addition to being a text for those studying to become early childhood teachers, TEACHING YOUNG CHILDREN IN MULTICULTURAL CLASSROOMS: ISSUES, CONCEPTS, AND STRATEGIES, 3rd Edition, is a comprehensive resource for all practicing professionals who work with young children on a daily basis.
