Overview

This comprehensive book is the only one of its kind to approach multicultural education by integrating context, process, and content. It uses this threefold perspective to examine the impact of social and cultural factors on teaching and learning—to help teachers better understand multicultural education, and to effect changes that promote excellence and equity in their own schools and classrooms. It presents a vision of what education in a democratic nation should be for all students, along with concrete strategies and techniques to make the vision a reality. Written from an educational perspective, the book provides an exceptional balance of contemporary theory, research, and practice. Chapter topics include the context of teaching; linking home, neighborhood, and community contexts; school and classroom contexts; classroom processes; textbooks and other instructional materials; development of a multicultural curriculum; and teaching from a multicultural perspective. For education professionals in K-12 multicultural and multilingual classroom settings.
