An Introduction to Multicultural Education / Edition 3

Divided into five parts, the Seventh Edition emphasizes that the main goal of the multicultural curriculum should be to help readers develop the ability to make reflective decisions so that they can, through thoughtful action, influence their personal, social and civic worlds and help to make them more democratic and just. The book is designed to help teachers conceptualize, design, and implement a democratic, thoughtful, and just curriculum that honors and reflects the experiences, hopes, and dreams of all Americans. It describes knowledge, concepts, strategies, and resources that teachers need to teach ethnic studies in the classroom. For classroom teachers at all levels, and those interested in gaining a better understanding of multicultural studies in the classroom.
