9780810850798: Cultural Journeys: Multicultural Literature for Children and Young Adults

Through the window of multicultural literature, we are allowed to enter worlds not physically open to us―to view, to empathize, and to participate emotionally in ways that may ultimately change the way we see ourselves and the society in which we live. Introducing students to the historical contexts of racism and prejudice through the use of literature promotes active discussions and leads students to think about racial diversity.

This book provides a mechanism for teachers―pre-service to veteran―to develop an understanding of multicultural literature and the criteria used to evaluate it. It promotes multicultural education in schools and helps to develop teaching strategies and resources that will benefit all students. Through its discussion of picture books, folklore, fairytales, myth, legends, fantasy, historical fiction, realistic fiction, and nonfiction works appropriate for grades K-8, students are enabled to see the strengths and weaknesses within each literature genre as well as within each culture. Prospective and experienced teachers will gain a deeper understanding of how to use multicultural literature throughout the entire curriculum and not just during designated months or time periods. Examples of unit plans and an extensive annotated bibliography are also included. Cultural Journeys will help teachers and other readers to deepen their knowledge, appreciation, and pedagogical understandings of multicultural literature.
