Take Action! Lesson Plans for a Multicultural Classroom is for all teachers striving to meet the needs of students in today's diverse K-12 classrooms. Take Action! offers 27 practical step-by-step multicultural lesson plans organized around seven microcultures: culture and identity, race and ethnicity, abilities and disabilities, religion, socioeconomics and class, language, and gender and sexuality.
 Each chapter includes three lesson plans at three different grade levels (elementary, middle, and secondary). Each lesson plan is presented with an accessible and predictable format, outlines the content areas addressed, provides a recipe-stype list of materials for all the activities in the lesson plan and action projects, and so much more. Connections to national professional standards and benchmarks for K-12 education as outlined by the Mid-continent Research for Education Learning are also included in every lesson plan.
