This best-selling text explores the meaning, necessity, and benefits of multicultural education–in a sociopolitical context–for students of all backgrounds.
Sonia Nieto and Patty Bode look at how personal, social, political, cultural, and educational factors affect the success or failure of students in today's classroom. Expanding upon the popular case-study approach, Affirming Diversity: The Sociopolitical Context of Multicultural Education examines the lives of real students who are affected by multicultural education, or the lack of it. This social justice view of multicultural education encourages teachers to work for social change in their classrooms, schools, and communities.
The sixth edition has been completely reorganized and updated, with six new case studies and two new snapshots. A brand new Chapter 1, “Understanding the Sociopolitical Context of Multicultural Education,” sets the stage for the entire text, and a brand new Chapter 10, “Adapting the Curriculum for Multicultural Classrooms,” includes curriculum ideas, activities, and resources through three examples of multicultural curricula.
