An Annotated Bibliography of Research on Multicultural Education.
North Central Regional Educational Lab., Oak Brook, IL.
This annotated bibliography provides some of the best resources available to help practitioners create high-achieving learning environments where all children have the opportunity for success. The bibliography is based on the six principles according to which resources are grouped: (1) school policies and practices demonstrate respect for and acceptance of culturally and linguistically diverse students; (2) curriculum, instruction, and assessment build on students' culture, language, and prior experiences; (3) educators set high expectations for all students and provide opportunities to reach them; (4) students gain knowledge about a variety of cultures and languages; (5) schools construct culturally responsive and high-achieving learning environments through active partnerships with parents, families, and community leaders; and (6) professional development helps educators examine their own beliefs and fosters understanding of culturally and linguistically diverse groups. In all, 58 sources are annotated. (SLD)
