This book describes an interdisciplinary literature-based educational program, demonstrating how multiculturalization of a traditional curriculum can move from creating awareness to changing perceptions and instilling new attitudes.

The book provides 100 student exemplars and models for developing or enhancing a multicultural curriculum at the intermediate or secondary levels. Within the models presented, integration of student learning occurs through hands-on, practical applications of the fine arts, language arts, social studies with the media center serving as the hub for all activity. This book is recommended for school and public librarians, graduate education library science departments, curriculum specialists, teachers, and anyone who has an interest in enriching and diversifying student learning.
