Cultural Diversity and Education: Foundations, Curriculum, and Teaching
Much more than a "how-to/activities" book, this textbook gives students a strong background in the conceptual, theoretical, and philosophical issues in multicultural education.
Cultural Diversity and Education is designed to help pre-service and in-service educators clarify the philosophical and definitional issues related to pluralistic education, derive a clarified philosophical position, design and implement effective teaching strategies that reflect ethnic and cultural diversity, and prepare sound guidelines for multicultural programs and practices. This book describes actions that educators can take to institutionalize educational programs and practices related to ethnic and cultural diversity.
Whereas previous editions focused largely on ethnic diversity, this fourth edition has been substantially revised to give more attention to other cultural groups. Also, the scope has been broadened to include content on gender, disability, and giftedness. The significant changes made in this edition necessitated that the title be changed from Multiethnic Education: Theory and Practice to Cultural Diversity and Education: Foundations, Curriculum, and Teaching to better reflect the broader coverage of its content.
