About the book:

Educators and librarians already face the challenge of designing their curriculums to incorporate material that reflects the multicultural student populations they must help to educate and develop. "Against Borders" is a resource book designed to aid teachers and librarians in directing students, primarily grades 6 to 12, to reading materials by, or about, people from different cultural backgrounds. "Against Borders" features updated and expanded "Booklist" bibliographies on specific ethnic groups and cultural issues plus substantive original essays on related topics by Hazel Rochman. Rochman's "booktalks" explore such themes as outsiders, friends, family, survival, journals, fathers and love. The author intends to guide the reader in the ways of promoting books to young readers. Illustrated throughout, sections cover fiction and nonfiction titles. Curriculum units focus on topics such as the holocaust, immigration, Black history month, and genres such as myth, autobiography and poetry. This resource book is intended to be used in curriculum planning to shape programmes that encourage students to explore the diverse world around them.
