Overview

Becoming a Multicultural Educator: Developing Awareness, Gaining Skills, and Taking Action is the core text for pre-service and in-service PK-12 educators in courses on multicultural education and diversity. Responding to the growing need for better training for teachers in how to work with a diverse population, increase academic achievement, and prepare students for a global workplace, authors William A. Howe and Penelope L. Lisi address how teachers can incorporate the knowledge they gain about other cultures into more effective classroom practice. The text begins by focusing on essential questions and theoretical concepts about multicultural education, and then leads readers through experiences to heighten their own cultural awareness, knowledge base, and skills set. The goal of the text is to prepare teachers to apply the concepts they learn in the text in their own classrooms and in schoolwide settings.
