Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Teaching for Diversity (Third Edition), Ricardo Garcia argues that increasing student diversity in classrooms across North America places two imperatives on educators: they must learn effective strategies for teaching diverse groups of students, and they must integrate skills for accepting and thriving in diverse groups into their teaching. He moves from a broad overview of the history of schooling and attitudes toward diversity in education to a specific treatment of today's schools' needs and objectives.

This resource employs both theory and concrete examples to construct a vision of schools as the foundation for an inclusive, democratic society.

Book News Annotation:

García (education, U. of Nebraska-Lincoln) explores how to teach diverse students in general and also teach them to deal positively with diversity. He integrates the role of facilitative teachers with a developmental view of human diversity, first discussing broad concepts of schools, teaching, and learning: the definition of an American, how twentieth century immigration shaped the US, diversity and national unity and the educational system, the establishment of universal public education, culture and self-identity, prejudice, and sociocultural factors and the achievement gap. Specific instructional practices, classroom community building, and methods for curriculum development are then covered. Reorganized, this edition adds new information on the impact of non-white immigration on society and schools, the demographic shift in American life and schools, family diversity, and religious diversity in the US and Canada. It also has a new chapter on teacher and student-created curriculum materials that reflect local cultures, new reflection questions and interactive group exercises in each chapter, and updated resources.
