For undergraduate and graduate courses in Multicultural Education and Cultural Foundations.This well-respected text helps students understand pluralism and the complexities of cultural backgrounds and how to use this knowledge successfully in the classroom. It appropriately describes seven critical microcultures to which students and teachers belong: class; ethnicity and race; gender; exceptionality; religion; language; and age. These microcultures form the foundation for understanding pluralism and multicultural education. Although this version has many new additions, the authors' goal remains the same-to help teachers deliver an equitable education for all students.show more
