Overview

Teaching Diversity is different from other instruction. Rather than reporting objective themes or imparting detached information on new management techniques, diversity teaching involves questioning our institutions and policies, our definitions of truth and equity, our self-images, and our professional roles. It requires a deep personal journey of self-discovery and growth. Teaching Diversity explores that journey.

This book offers instructors a map to the diversity terrain, helping them choose a personal teaching path, recognize crossroads, anticipate roadblocks, and sustain personal commitment along the way.

This creative and collaborative effort will benefit you professionally and touch you personally. The contributors—women and men from a wide range of ages, cultures, and backgrounds—take a unique look at the paradoxes inherent in the diversity teaching process. Through heartfelt accounts of their own experiences, they provide grounded insights and sound advice about how to prepare for the kind of teaching that changes lives.
