When comparing these texts, educators should ground their analysis in…

Given this trend, it is hardly surprising that this social…

Green-Gibson, Andrea; Collett, April – Multicultural Education, 2014
The public educational system is comprised of diverse demographics wherein each student has a distinct cultural personal history (O'Brien, 1998). In America, the traditional perception was that a melting pot society existed. But deMarrais and LeCompte (1999) maintain that a stew pot or salad bowl would be a more appropriate analogy. Melting pot…

Hain-Jamall, Doe A. S. – Multicultural Education, 2013
According to this author, the Earth is in trouble. Decades of mining, over-fishing, and the pumping of toxic chemicals into the atmosphere have taken an enormous toll on an otherwise robust and healthy planetary ecosystem.
