Book News Annotation:

For teachers who want to make their classrooms warm, nurturing environments, Sapon-Shevin (inclusive education, Syracuse U.) blends theory and practice to explain how they can create diverse, inclusive preschool through middle school classrooms and promote social justice, diversity, and other values. She focuses on all types of diversity, from race to disability to class, and describes activities, games, songs, and children's books related to specific vision statements for making schools into communities, and allowing students to share themselves, understand each other, set goals and give support, learn together, and speak the truth. This edition has updated resources, a stronger emphasis on differentiated instruction, and a new section in most of the chapters on reflecting and analyzing experiences relating to each topic.
