Multicultural Special Education

Culturally Responsive Teaching

Festus E. Obiakor

 

Because of recent demographic changes in our society, general and special educators are challenged to look for innovative ways to maximize all students' potenital in school programs.  As a result, there has been a need for culturally responsive resources. Multicultural Special Education: Culturally Responsive Teaching is a timely book that examines multiculturalism, disability, and education, and focuses on how general and special education teachers and practitioners can make education better for multicultural learners with and without exceptionalities. This innovative book, written by leaders in the field of Multicultural Special Education, makes the case for educating teachers to work with all students.

 

The foundations of this book are based on the following fundamental assumptions that must guide general and special educators and service providers:

    • All students can learn in least restrictive environments.
    • All learners can maximize their fullest potential when taught by well-prepared teachers.
    • Language is a part of culture and culture is a part of all human existence.
    • Education is a powerful tool that advances all members of the society.
    • Good teachers are good students who consistently learn how to teach all learners.

Chapters focus on the multicultural aspects of the federally defined categories of exceptionality, disability throughout the lifespan, and the future perspectives of multicultural education. The book also includes:

    • Thinking About Multicultural Special Education --a chapter-opening case study--that sets the stage for themes and ideas presented throughout the chapter
    • A Culturally Responsive Educator --strategies at the end of each chapter detailing what to do to be an effective educator
    • Discussion Questions that evaluate the reader's knowledge base and advance problem-solving skills
