Overview

This best-selling text offers a balanced approach to issues as it explores today’s multicultural landscape and how to prepare teachers to use equitable and reflective decision making in their multicultural classrooms.

The ninth edition of Multicultural Education in a Pluralistic Society was designed to introduce prospective teachers to the different cultural groups to which students and their families belong. In this time of extensive standardized testing, we must remember that students are the center of teaching. We have to understand and build on their cultures and experiences to help them learn at the highest levels. In this regard, this book provides background on the diversity of the nation’s students, explores the social and educational issues faced by teachers in diverse classrooms, and guides the reader to think critically and reflectively about their decisions as a teacher in a multicultural education classroom.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A text for students in undergraduate, graduate, and in-service courses, examining social and cultural conditions that influence education. Chapters describe microcultures of class, ethnicity and race, gender, exceptionality, religion, language, and age, and recommend the use of pluralism in the implementation of multicultural education. This edition contains sections asking readers to reflect on their personal convictions and consider alternative perspectives and controversial practices. Integrated into every chapter are stories from a video library compiled by ABC news programming. Also new to this edition are end-of-chapter classroom experiences and discussion questions on how to avoid discrimination and prejudice. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

    I bought the book for the online graduate course I'm taking. It serves its purpose.
