Book Description
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.
