Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Helps teachers explore how students', colleagues', and their own cultural beliefs and biases affect growth and learning. The author argues that because multiculturalism has become so politically correct, true feelings and honest opinions are reserved for the teachers' lounge. He then analyzes how caution, instead of real sensitivity to diversity, is often the norm, and offers strategies to discuss cultural differences inside the classroom, confront biases and prejudices, recognize misunderstandings before they occur, and make learning more culturally relevant. No index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
