This book is a comprehensive guide to infusing multicultural education into the classroom. The author, Rose Reissman, relates many of her experiences as an inner-city, middle school language arts teacher and teacher educator in an engaging, concrete way. The book shows how teachers can actively involve their students in projects that promote academic excellence and cultural understanding, involve multiple intelligences, and benefit the community.
Section I presents activities to introduce teachers, students, and parents to the concepts of multicultural education.
Section II focuses on three areas of the curriculum--language arts, social studies, and the arts. Reissman relates how many teaching strategies and student projects (many involving technology) evolved from an original activity, through student interest and exploration of topics and themes in newspapers, works of literature, current events, community resources, and students' backgrounds.
Section III provides resources, including detailed outlines of activities a nd strategies, that encourage teachers to put together their own program and solicit parent input. An index is included. [via]
