Summary

This practical supplemental text allows pre-service and practicing teachers with even the most limited background knowledge about multicultural and global education to apply that knowledge in their classrooms, schools, and communities.

The introductory chapter gives a general background review of multicultural and global education concepts and discusses the importance of teachers becoming involved in transforming their educational practice. The next six chapters investigate the classroom elements of teacher, students, environment, curriculum, instructions, and assessment for ways to apply multicultural and global concepts. The final two chapters take readers beyond the classroom into the school and community.

The text's comprehensive and multi-dimensional approach to applying multicultural and global concepts helps pre-service and in-service teachers transform their practice into culturally relevant teaching.

Features :

  • "Think and Act" boxes throughout the text provide individual and cooperative learning opportunities for the student to reflect upon their teaching strategies in a multicultural context.
  • Self-Assessment Tables are tools that force the reader to come to terms with his or her own preconceptions, assumptions and attitudes towards multicultural education (Ch. 2).
  • Designed for immediate use in the classroom, The "Environmental Checklist" ensures a stable, inviting, and friendly learning environment.
  • An Annotated Bibliography at the end of the text provides a convenient reference tool for further research and discovery in Multicultural and Global Education.
