This well-respected book helps readers understand pluralism and the complexities of cultural backgrounds and how to use this knowledge successfully in the classroom. It appropriately describes seven critical microcultures to which students and teachers belong: class; ethnicity and race; gender; exceptionality; religion; language; and age. These microcultures form the foundation for understanding pluralism and multicultural education. A focus on current issues features sections on hate groups, school violence, social justice, culturally responsible teaching, and teaching for democracy. Video insights incorporated into each chapter promote stimulating social and cultural discussions around video segments from ABC News. For teachers striving to deliver an equitable education to all students.

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.From the Back Cover:
