Overview

Choosing Democracy: A Practical Guide to Multicultural Education, 4e

Duane E. Campbell, California State University, Sacramento

This book gives students the preparation they need to participate in constructing the future of our society!

The fourth edition of Choosing Democracy continues to assist future teachers in analyzing their own cultural frames of reference and developing a second multicultural perspective. Looking at education through the prism of race, class, gender, and economic status, the author provides a solid foundation of multicultural education while at the same time offering useful and class-tested teaching strategies throughout.

In addition to being substantially revised, the new edition offers the following changes:

  • Provides ideas for teachers looking to change their curriculum in Chapter 12. This chapter has been revised to become a Multicultural Curriculum chapter including the issues of standards and test-based accountability in this era of reform.
  • Includes a new section with a new co-author (Dr. Francisco Reveles), an expert on gang-related behavior and bullying.
  • Illustrates ways to manage a classroom based on democratic principles and cultural proficiency–makes the text valuable to every future teacher.
  • Contains a new section on integrating technology and using the Internet in the classroom.
  • Features a thoroughly revised Chapter 13 explaining major efforts at school reform and the No Child Left Behind Act.

Praise for the 4th Edition:

“This book is practical, current, relevant, and reaps the benefits of insights gained by the hundreds of students and many teachers who have used the book over the years. It is the hope of the authors that the use of this book in the classroom will contribute to the creation of a society where all students receive a quality education. This magisterial treatment of our contemporary crisis in American society, culture, and education takes us step-by-step through the treacherous terrains that impede our efforts to examine critically and expand effectively democracy in our time. His powerful text is the most comprehensive analysis we have of sharpening the practical strategies for multicultural education in America. The best of American life has always been embodied and enacted by courageous figures who chose democracy—from Thomas Paine, Harriet Tubman, César Chávez, Ronald Takaki, to Dolores Huerta. Duane Campbell makes it clear what it means to choose democracy in our classrooms, workplaces, homes, and civic life. In short, like James Baldwin, he frightfully reminds us that we either choose democracy now or ultimately witness the fire this time!” –Cornel West, Princeton University
