In this succinct, yet comprehensive book, leading authority James A. Banks gives readers a forward-reaching look toward increasing their understanding of what multicultural education means for classroom teaching in contemporary classrooms. Here he explores the concepts, principles, theories, and practices of multicultural education in such key areas as: the goals and misconceptions of multicultural education; citizenship education and diversity in a global age; curriculum transformation; curriculum reform; and, school reform and intergroup education. Included are checklists for evaluating informational materials and evaluating multicultural education. An Introduction to Multicultural Education is ideal for pre-service and practicing educators who require a concrete approach but have little time to devote to the topic.
Since the 1994 edition, US schools have edged closer to being 50% populated by students of color. Banks (Director, Center for Multicultural Education; U. of Washington, Seattle) overviews dimensions of multicultural education (including misconceptions), curriculum reforms, and benchmarks for effective pluralistic schools. Newly appended checklists for evaluating materials; and the Nebraska Multicultural Education Bill. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
