Multicultural Education More Information
MULTICULTURAL EDUCATION: A Caring-Centered, Reflective Approach with Internet Guide and PowerWeb, Second Edition
by Valerie Ooka Pang, San Diego State University--San Diego
This text takes a personalized and practical approach towards multicultural education. Instead of starting with theory and adding classroom applications as secondary content, Multicultural Education starts with the teacher and what the teacher needs to know in order to be an effective multicultural educator. A strong theoretical foundation is interwoven throughout the text in a manner that makes it relevant to the reader. The text's strong practical approach, along with its reader-friendly and jargon-free upbeat writing style, make it an ideal text for both undergraduate courses (where students want real classroom examples) and graduate courses (where in-service teachers can relate to and learn from the scenarios).

BILINGUAL AND ESL CLASSROOMS: Teaching in Multicultural Contexts, Third Edition
by Carlos J. Ovando, Arizona State University--Tempe, Virginia P. Collier, George Mason University, Mary Carol Combs, University of Arizona
Demographic predictions are that students with close connections to their bilingual/bicultural heritages (now labeled “language minority students” by the federal government) will be very large in number in the near future, becoming the majority in many states over the next three decades. The authors feel it is the responsibility of all educators, not just specialists, to prepare themselves to work with language minority students. This time-tested classic text (not an edited volume) integrates theory and practice and provides comprehensive coverage of bilingual and ESL issues. The text integrates the fields of ESL, bilingual, and multicultural education and provides rich examples of effective practices and their underlying research knowledge base. New to this edition are chapters on authentic assessment and special needs. (more)
