Multicultural Education is a reader for educators that consists of articles written by the top scholars in the field. It helps them understand the concepts, paradigms, and explanations needed to become more effective practitioners in culturally, racially and language diverse classrooms. Each chapter now incorporates new theoretical, conceptual, and research developments in the field. A new chapter focuses on gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender issues. Every statistical table, figure, and chart has also been updated to present the most current information. Educators will gain insight that they’ll be able to apply in the classroom.


Written for present and future educators, this book offers guidance on becoming an effective teacher in the diverse classroom.
