Review quote

The book begins by discussing issues involved in preparing a predominantly White preservice teacher education population for multicultural teaching, and issues faculty need to consider when redesigning their coursework from a multicultural perspective. The remaining chapters examine and illustrate how specific courses in the teacher education curriculum can be redesigned multiculturally. Authors include many practical "nuts and bolts" suggestions along with discussions of problems that might be encountered in their implementation.
