From the Back Cover:

Reviewer Praise:

 

“I spend considerable time with the cases in Bridging Multiple Worlds. I appreciate the time the authors dedicate to explaining the importance of using cases [for education].”  —Michaela Colombo, University of Massachusetts–Lowell

 

“[Taylor and Whittaker] have done a thorough job of addressing all the definitions of multicultural education and the multitude of theories around it.”  —Dr. Joy Wiggins, University of Texas–Arlington

 

Informative and accessible, Bridging Multiple Worlds combines foundational chapters with real-world cases involving staff, students, and families in various school settings to promote thought and discussion about all facets of diversity—race, immigration, class, gender, sexual orientation, language, religion, and exceptionality. Employing a decision-making scaffold, Taylor and Whittaker emphasize long-term, comprehensive solutions that promote school, home, and community cooperation and guide future teachers, counselors, service providers, and administrators toward an understanding of the complexity of school and community diversity issues.
