Doing Multicultural Education for Achievement and Equity
Routledge – 2011 – 278 pages
Doing Multicultural Education for Achievement and Equity, a hands-on, reader-friendly multicultural education textbook, actively engages education students in critical reflection and self-examination as they prepare to teach in increasingly diverse classrooms. In this engaging text, Carl A. Grant and Christine E. Sleeter, two of the most eminent scholars of multicultural teacher education, help pre-service teachers develop the tools they will need to learn about their students and their students’ communities and contexts, about themselves, and about the social relations in which schools are embedded. Doing Multicultural Education for Achievement and Equity challenges readers to take a truly active and ongoing role in promoting equity within education and helps to guide them in becoming highly qualified and fantastic teachers.
Features and updates to this much-anticipated second edition include:
"Written in a lively and accessible way, this book allows students to become active, thoughtful participants in meaningful dialogues about multicultural education and their future role as teachers in a diverse and democratic society."
--Nadine Dolby, Associate Professor of Curriculum Studies and Cultural Foundations of Education, Purdue University
Praise for the previous edition:
"Grant and Sleeter have written a textbook where students actively engage in (rather than just read about) becoming multicultural educators. I know of no other text that helps faculty scaffold students towards thoughtful engagement with such complex and critical issues."
--Dan W. Butin, founding Dean of the School of Education, Merrimack College
