Educational Equity: The Integration of Equity into Preservice Teacher Education Programs.
Dawson, Martha E.; And Others
This volume of papers, written by professors of education, an administrator, and a clinical psychologist, illustrate how the concept of equity can be woven into the professional components of teacher education. In "A Matter of Linkage: Multicultural Education and Educational Equity," Martha E. Dawson maintains that multicultural education is an educational conglomerate with links to a number of equity issues. Patricia Bidol, in "A Preservice Model for Multicultural Education" and "Preservice Student Teaching Model for Multicultural Education," describes six phases for developing and testing a preservice model for multicultural education. Eugene F. Provenzo, Jr., lists brief statements and suggested lecture topics in educational equity for introductory education courses in his article, "Educational Equity and the Social Foundations of Education.""Cultural Diversity, Psychology, and Learning," by Roger L. Collins, acquaints the reader with some of the concepts of educational equity that relate to the study of educational psychology. Consuelo Nieto's article, "Multiculturalism and the Methodology of Teaching," outlines the general processes and content that can be adapted to any teacher preparation program that is incorporating multicultural and equity concepts into its curriculum. Brief bibliographies for further reading are appended to each paper. A section defining terminology related to multicultural education is included. (CJ)
