Multicultural & Global/International Education: Guidelines for Programs in Teacher Education.
McFadden, John; And Others
Multicultural education strives to value and respect the uniqueness of persons within a common human community. It expresses the democratic ideals of equality, of unity within diversity, and of justice for all, free of any racial, gender, or social class discrimination. This six-part document explores multicultural and international education in the context of teacher education programs. Part 1 explains multicultural education and examines considerations in educating teachers in multicultural education. Part 2 looks at global/international education and considerations for teacher education. Part 3 focuses on tensions or conflicts between multicultural education and global/international education. Part 4 explores commonalities and connections between multicultural education and global/international education. Part 5 outlines recommendations, including: providing teachers with cross-cultural experiences and reflection, recognizing that multicultural and global and international education involve an ongoing learning process; and working with colleagues across the fields of multicultural education and global and international education. Part 6 provides a list of references and resources on multicultural education and global/international education, and on making connections between multicultural education and global/international education. (Contains 65 references.) (ND)
