This well-respected book helps readers understand pluralism and the complexities of cultural backgrounds and how to use this knowledge successfully in the classroom. It appropriately describes seven critical microcultures to which students and teachers belong: class; ethnicity and race; gender; exceptionality; religion; language; and age. These microcultures form the foundation for understanding pluralism and multicultural education. A focus on current issues features sections on hate groups, school violence, social justice, culturally responsible teaching, and teaching for democracy. Video insights incorporated into each chapter promote stimulating social and cultural discussions around video segments from ABC News. For teachers striving to deliver an equitable education to all students.
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.
