This is an outstanding, research-based, self-exploratory set of hands-on exercises that can be used in any Diversity or Multicultural Education course, alongside any text. Instead of just telling, this consumable workbook allows students to learn by doing and reflecting on and writing down his or her own experiences and views. The text addresses race, ethnicity, gender, class, disability, and sexual orientation, and more. Informational readings give students the background to complete the exercises. Part I, "Getting to Know the Culture of Self," covers the concept of culture and the development of self. Part II, "Getting to Know the Culture of Others," provides a basic framework to analyze cultural differences and the processes involved in intercultural interaction. Part III, "Modifying Curriculum and Instruction to Address the Goals of Diversity," contains exercises that demonstrate a culture's influence on teaching and learning and illustrates strategies that can modify existing curriculum and instruction.
