Overview

Designed for introductory social foundations or multicultural education courses, this text offers a powerful model for cultural ecological analysis and pedagogy of responsibility, providing teachers and teacher educators with the information and classroom practices they need to help develop citizens who are prepared to support and achieve diverse, democratic, and sustainable societies in an increasingly globalized world.

A primary premise is that diversity and democracy must be considered within our larger and more fundamental relationships to the living ecological systems supporting our communities. The book examines issues of social justice—race, class, gender, globalization—within a larger EcoJustice framework. It offers an analytic model whereby teachers and their students learn to identify the deep cultural patterns and assumptions framing our relationships to each other and to the natural world.
