Unique in both approach and content, this text prepares prospective teachers for the challenging situations they will face in our increasingly multicultural/ multilingual diverse classrooms and schools. Written from the classroom teacher's perspective, it shares the insights of teachers who have developed new cross-cultural perspectives, new pedagogies and curriculum, new strategies and programs to respond to the continuing educational crises of their students. While the literature has described the theoretical foundations of a social reconstructionist approach to democratic education, this is the first text to show teachers how to implement such an approach.From the Back Cover:
