This book provides teachers and trainers with 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. Using a motivational framework for culturally responsive teaching complete with extensive examples and illustrations, the authors describe the values, learning strategies, and structures necessary to establish inclusion, develop attitude, enhance meaning, and engender competence. By considering a set of eight guidelines, teachers and trainers can learn how to revise syllabus and assessment formats, form cooperative collegial groups, and create action plans for implementing a culturally responsive pedagogy. Diversity and Motivation shows all postsecondary faculty, instructors, trainers, and administrators how to create safe and respectful learning environments with teaching practices that cross disciplines and cultures to engage the motivation and honor the integrity of all learners.
