Review:
This text offers a historical and conceptual overview of what multicultural education means, along with a thorough analysis of the theory and practice of five major approaches to dealing with race, culture, language, class, gender, and disability in today's classrooms. Making Choices for Multicultural Education, Second Edition begins with an examination of goals and assumptions related to diversity and their implications for teaching practice. Following this, five individual chapters examine basic theory and current practice related to commonly-used approaches to diversity. Finally, the authors discuss, in detail, the Multicultural/Social Reconstructionist approach they advocate, analyzing its strengths and weaknesses, and sharing their decision-making process. This last chapter helps students understand the questions they must ask themselves before choosing an approach for their own teaching.
