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.

Multicultural teacher education does not work without attending to the inner landscapes of learners. This collection of essays depicts a journey of unlearning deeply cherished assumptions, and gaining new, difficult understandings of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class, and global issues in teacher education. Foregrounding learners’ own voices and highlighting those intimate moments of awakening through a process-oriented and dialogic approach, this book, in its profoundly moving narrative and critically reflective voices, speaks directly to pre-service and in-service teachers and informs teacher educators’ multicultural pedagogical theory and practice. Demonstrating the power of multicultural education through the learner’s lens, this compelling and inspirational book is a much-needed text for undergraduate and graduate courses in teacher education, multicultural education, curriculum studies, and social foundations of education.

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.

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 Culturally Inclusive Educator asks educators to consider what they can do differently to create a welcoming, inclusive, and exciting environment for the 21st century. Based on the author’s national research and consulting work, this book examines the discrepancy between the current educational cultural climate and the need for educators and their institutions to prepare for a growing multicultural population. It asks what constitutes effective preparation, and provides guidance on overcoming personal and institutional challenges to cultural inclusiveness (stereotype threats, microaggressions, colorblindness/identity-blindness, implicit bias, among others). Samuels begins with the challenges facing the higher education community and then offers 8 transformative steps to help build cultural inclusiveness that any educator teaching any subject can utilize to increase their effectiveness. Culturally inclusive leadership is highlighted as the model for educators and institutions to embrace for success in today’s world. Book Features: Diversity training and inclusiveness strategies for transforming curricula.Reflective practices that unearth personal biases and behaviors.Insights about faculty preparedness drawn from an unprecedented national study.Attention to specific issues and intersections of race, gender, sexual orientation, and disability.A lens for understanding cultural inclusiveness as a fundamental leadership practice. “Dena Samuels takes us straight to the heart of what is perhaps the most urgent and perplexing questions facing 21st-century educators: Are we prepared to work effectively with the rapidly increasing diversity of our student population? She challenges us to confront the misperceptions of our own readiness and to examine the biases that lie beneath even our best intentions. The journey she guides us into is both profoundly discomforting and absolutely necessary. This book provides the research and the tools for transforming ourselves and our practice; it is up to us to do the work.” —Gary R. Howard, Equity and School Change Consulting “At last—an empathetic and inspiring book that says the way to educate all students more successfully is to awaken teachers’ higher awareness. Dena Samuels suggests a paradigm shift in which teachers, having seen the practices of exclusion that have been programmed into them, develop more inclusive awareness and learn to respect, hear, and ally with the growth and development of all students, including themselves.” —Peggy McIntosh, founder and senior associate, National SEED Project on Inclusive Curriculum
