A comprehensive look at multicultural education that balances theory with practical teaching strategies.
Comprehensive Multicultural Education: Theory and Practice uniquely blends diversity theory, history, and social science with sample lessons, cases, and real-world vignettes so that pre- and in-service teachers understand the what, why, and how of multicultural education. A comprehensive conceptual framework of multicultural teaching and a teacher-tested curriculum development model give readers a strong foundation for integrating multicultural perspectives in their own curricula. Incorporating current research and new sections on race and social justice, the 9th Edition includes three new chapters on gender, poverty, and special education so that today’s teachers are better equipped to become informed, caring advocates for all students.
