Understanding the Whole Student: Holistic Multicultural Education
Cutri, Ramona Maile; Rogers, P. Clint; Montero, Fidel
Rowman & Littlefield Education
This book presents a holistic approach to multicultural educational issues by viewing them in terms of the student as a physical, psychosocial, cognitive, ethical, and spiritual being. Conversely, these levels of a student's being cannot be seen apart from the student's cultural identities. This unique book demonstrates that, in a pluralistic democracy, good teaching and deep learning must be multicultural and must look at the student as a whole being--not just as a future worker in a transnational corporate economy as is currently the case with both neo-liberal and neo-conservative programs for "reform." The authors contend that good education is, and must be, multicultural in order to gain a deeper perspective on issues under analysis in the classroom through the sharing and negotiating of many different cultural perspectives. The book contains two parts. Part I, Foundations of Multicultural Education, presents: (1) Core Issues in the Cultural Foundations of Education; and (2) Language and Education. Part II, The Four Domains of Multicultural Education, concludes with: (3) The Sensorimotor Domain; (4) The Psychosocial Domain; (5) The Cognitive Domain; (6) The Ethicospiritual Domain; and (7) Conclusion: Teaching and Learning in the Twenty-First Century.
