The Permutations of Multicultural Literature as a Tool for Teacher Preparation: A Systematic Review of the Literature
Casto, Amanda R.
Multicultural Education, v27 n2 p24-30 Win 2020
The economic, technological, and social effects of the contemporary globalization era have spurred new challenges in education and teacher preparation. As the tapestry of American society shifts and technology rapidly evolves, teachers and teacher educators are finding themselves faced with the pressing need to prepare students for a more tolerant and globally diverse society. Methods for increasing preservice teachers' (PSTs') awareness of--and preparation for--these issues in their classrooms have yet to be widely researched or established in the field. This systematic review seeks to broaden the field's knowledge of multicultural teacher education by exploring one specific multicultural education practice: the employment of multicultural literature in teacher education courses.
