To help both new and seasoned teachers to become more effective with their students from diverse backgrounds, Becoming Multicultural Educators edited by Geneva Gay, offers fourteen compelling stories from different regions, cultures, ethnic groups, and stages of professional and personal growth in developing multicultural awareness, knowledge, and skills. One contributing author declares community participation and social activism are the keys to his professional growth. For another, multicultural understanding comes when she learns to unveil the masks of insidious negative stereotypes. Through these stories, we share their struggles as these educators come to understand diversity among ethnic groups and cultures, resolve conflicts between curricular and multicultural goals, and find authentic models and mentors for their students. But most important, we learn how this laudatory group of educators has come to realize that they need to know themselves if they are to truly know their students. Well-grounded in education theory, Becoming Multicultural Educators is both personal and inspiring. This is the book that will help teachers, and those who prepare them, blossom as educators and human beings.

Written in a narrative style, with complex concepts and theories explained in everyday language, and full of practical, current examples, this concise text asks educators to examine their identities. It demonstrates how the social construction of identities has shaped individuals’ perceptions, judgments, and understanding of the world. Noel integrates the right mix of personal experiences of multicultural educators, literature from that field, and information from the psychological, philosophical, and sociological foundations of education to help educators plan for diversity in their teaching. Alongside up-to-date statistics and examples are timely discussions of immigration, community involvement, the achievement gap, sex and gender, hate crimes, and bullying—issues that touch multicultural educators on a daily basis. Advantageous pedagogical tools—group and individual activities, guided discussion questions, case studies, and end-of-chapter reflective writings—help readers gain a clear vision of how to be an effective teacher in today’s diverse communities.

The United States of America is a multilingual and multicultural nation made up of people of culturally, economically, religiously, and linguistically diverse backgrounds. Designed to appeal to all educators, this book was written to help prospective educators address socio-cultural questions, ideas, issues, and curiosities they encounter in multicultural education. Differences in race, ethnicity, culture, religion, social class, and socio-economic status call for comprehensive multicultural education – not only for students, but also for teachers. Today’s pre-service and in-service educators – teachers, administrators, parents, and teacher candidates – need to understand how students of various cultures feel, learn, understand, and behave in elementary and secondary schools as well as how these students adjust and adapt to the mainstream society in the communities where they live. The information in this book will guide educators in exploring the socio-cultural issues of cultural diversity and multiculturalism.

In his new book, Michael Vavrus helps readers better understand why issues of diversity and difference are so highly contested in the United States and across the globe. Vavrus incorporates specific education examples throughout the text to examine six contested areas: race and ethnicity; socioeconomic class and culture; multicultural and ethnic studies; language; religion; and sexuality and gender. In each of these areas, the author explores how contrasting worldviews found in social conservatism, liberal multiculturalism, and critical multiculturalism influence our understandings about difference and diversity and the education policies we develop as a result. Diversity and Education is designed to help educators move beyond the “how can they believe that?” knee-jerk reaction toward a more informed, strategic understanding of belief systems and political affiliations. Book Features: Brings a contemporary, 21st–century perspective to differing political orientations toward diversity and education. Examines outcomes of diversity debates on children of color, the poor, immigrants, women, and sexual and religious minorities. Uses critical pedagogy with a historical and political economy lens to explain current diversity issues in education. Critiques the diversity stance of new national teacher education standards from the Council for Accreditation of Educator Preparation. “Diversity and Education can not only help us have conversations about racism, institutionalizedoppression, and cultural fear, it can also offer an intervention that can movereaders towards a deeper critical consciousness about diversity and multicultural education in their own lives.” —From the Foreword by Wayne Au, associate professor at the University of Washington, Bothell, and an editor for Rethinking Schools “Few education scholars have offered as potent and cogent a political and economic analysis of multicultural education and diversity as Professor Michael Vavrus has in his new book. His critique of neoliberalism via critical pedagogy and his advocacy of social justice education are timely and praiseworthy.” —Ramin Farahmandpur, professor, Graduate School of Education, Portland State University “Diversity and Education is a must-read for anyone concerned about why so many policies claiming to ‘help’ diverse students fail, and what alternatives exist. Vavrus clearly believes in the power of teachers who are well-educated critical thinkers. In this lucid and compelling text, he skillfully applies a highly useful framework to unpack historical and contemporary debates about core concepts underlying multiple struggles for education and rights.” —Christine Sleeter, professor emerita, California State University, Monterey Bay
