“My students love the book [and] tell me that they will use the techniques for working with diverse students in their classes.” 

—Joyce Nichols, University of West Florida


Written by the leading authority in the field, James A. Banks, the eighth edition of this classic text has been revamped and updated to reflect current and emerging theory, research, and scholarship in the fields of ethnic studies and multicultural education. Teaching Strategies for Ethnic Studies helps teachers conceptualize, design, and implement a democratic, thoughtful, and just curriculum that honors and reflects the experiences of all Americans. The book offers specific resources and strategies for transforming the mainstream curriculum to incorporate content and concepts about diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural groups, always reinforcing its main goal of leading teachers and students toward reflective decision-making about multicultural issues. Part I presents a rationale for incorporating ethnic content into the curriculum as well as goals and key concepts for the multicultural curriculum. Parts II through V include chapters on the major ethnic groups in the United States: Native and African Americans, Jewish and European Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Asian and Arab Americans.


New to this edition:

  • Thousands of statistics have been revised throughout the text; notably, data from the American Community Survey of the U.S. Census Bureau–a new nationwide survey that updates population trends between the decennial censuses– provide the most current population statistics available.
  • The American Community Survey data also informs the many new tables and figures throughout the text.
  • The latest trends and research in ethnic studies and multicultural education, such as the debate about immigration of Hispanics into the U.S., the influx of African immigrants, and increases in multi-racial/multi-ethnic children, are incorporated throughout the book
  • Hundreds of new annotated books and resources appear in fully revamped lists of recommended reading for students and teachers.
  • Refreshed appendixes of websites and visual media incorporate cutting-edge references and materials to keep pace with changing sources.
