Description

Focusing on the efforts of teacher educators struggling to meaningfully address issues of race, class, and gender in their classrooms, Practicing What We Teach goes beyond the realm of the theoretical to link multicultural theory to actual classroom practice. In so doing the contributors expose some of the stark realities of addressing issues of diversity in institutions where there has traditionally been little research or support for multicultural efforts. Shared classroom experience by teacher educators creates a new template for thinking about diversity as the reader is guided through the reconstruction of pedagogies and classroom approaches that encourage students to think reflectively and analytically about the nature of their experiences in American society.

It will help provide a forum for support and reeducation." -- Roberta Ahlquist, San Jose State University "There is currently growing attention among teacher educators on how to treat issues of diversity and multicultural education in teacher education programs. This book speaks directly to that set of issues." -- Lauren Jones Young, Michigan State University
