Overview

The student population in postsecondary education has become increasingly diverse, going far beyond simple distinctions of race, gAnder, and class to include a mix of ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, language, and disability. Yet, college teaching lacks a cohesive approach that consistently embraces diversity on a day-to-day basis to support the motivation of all learners.This book gives college faculty sensitive and practical help in working effectively with groups of culturally diverse learners. Raymond J. Wlodkowski and Margery B. Ginsberg combine their respective expertise in motivation and multiculturalism to go beyond the usual rhetoric on promoting diversity, offering real-world guidance and suggestions for successful teaching in today's changing classroom environment.Through extensive examples and illustrations, the authors describe the norms, procedures, and structures necessary to accomplish each motivational goal. And they present a set of eight guidelines showing how to revise a syllabus, create an action plan, form a cooperative collegial group, and identify a new role to carry out culturally responsive teaching.Diversity and Motivation shows how to meet the foremost challenge in education today: to create learning experiences that allow the integrity of every learner to be sustained while each person attains relevant educational success and mobility.
