This practical text, which defines multicultural education broadly to include all types of diversity, provides a wealth of content area-specific activities to help teachers implement an inclusive curriculum that meets the individual needs of each student. Bringing theory and practice together and applying a model focusing on Esteem, Empathy, and Equity, the authors encourage reflection and discussion through working with Reflective Teaching Portfolios and Cooperative Learning Groups at the end of each chapter. Teacher candidates learn the implications of such topics as language diversity, the academic achievement gap, and racism along with guidance to plan lessons designed to develop a community of learners in their classroom.
