A thoroughly updated new edition of this highly-successful text...the one that helps future teachers truly understand multiculturalism, and learn to apply non-biased, non-sexist, multicultural teaching methods to the creation of more effective, enlightened classroom instruction. Using seven distinctive "micro-cultures" as a framework for discussion, the authors define multiculturalism as more than just ethnicity. They broaden the perspective of multiculturalism by showing how individuals and families belong to a number of micro-cultures that reach beyond heritage or country of origin. Additionally, they provide insightful discussion of educational implications for each micro-culture, with specific recommendations for effectively bringing each group into the educational process.
