Synopses & Reviews
In this book, Sonia Nieto makes student learning the primary objective of multicultural education. Going beyond "curriculum integration, " Nieto draws on a host of research in learning styles, multiple intelligences, and cognitive theories to portray the ways in which students learn. She then takes us beyond individual learners to discuss the social context of learning, the history and manifestations of educational equity, the influence of culture on learning, and critical pedagogy.
