The Evolving Multicultural Classroom.
This book is a guide to infusing multicultural education into the classroom at the elementary and secondary levels. It includes curriculum strategies and extensive resources for immediate application. Section 1 presents activities to introduce teachers, students, and parents to the concepts of multicultural education. This section includes a discussion of definitions of multicultural education and strategies for engaging students in the multicultural idea. Section 2, on curriculum strategies, focuses on three areas of the curriculum, language arts, social studies, and the arts. This section describes how many teaching strategies and student projects evolved from an original activity, through student interest and exploration of topics and themes in newspapers, works of literature, current events, community resources, and students' backgrounds. Section 3 provides resources, including detailed outlines of activities and strategies, that encourage teachers to put together their own programs and solicit parent input. In particular, this section includes worksheets, teaching modules, parent participation forms, and an extensive resource list of multicultural literature anthologies, multicultural bibliographies, professional books and articles, and other resources (periodicals, videos, and centers).
