Prejudice reduction and the schools by James Lynch( Book )

8 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book sets prejudice reduction at the center of democratic school responses to cultural diversity. It provides information which will help teachers achieve a greater awareness of their own values and extend their professional objectives to eliminating prejudice. The book begins by discussing the tenacity and complexity of racial and other prejudices, taking into account four major influences: personality, social structure, culture, and environment. The book identifies a flexible model for systematizing the process of prejudice reduction, elaborating the case for both whole-school and whole-curricular policies. The curricular rationale proposed comprises seven major elements. Based on a scan of the literature, these elements are translated into a discussion of 12 key exemplary teaching approaches, setting forth their strengths, weaknesses, and proven potential in achieving attitude change. The book also attempts to identify the dynamic factors found in schools effective in reducing prejudice. The central role of material resources and continued professional development are discussed, and content, strategy, and principles are proposed. Examples from Great Britain are provided. (Ps)

Multicultural education in Western societies by James A Banks( Book )

15 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Western democratic societies share an egalitarian ideology which maintains that a major goal of the state is to protect human rights and promote equality and the structural inclusion of all racial, ethnic, and cultural groups into the fabric of society. Educational initiatives taken to implement reforms that reflect ethnic diversity and promote equality have created lively and sometimes embittered controversy because little agreement exists within each nation about what should be the proper role of public schools in the ethnic education of both majority and minority students. This book is divided into three major parts. Part I formulates a descriptive typology of the phases of ethnic revitalization movements, the paradigmatic responses that educators have made to these movements, and the limitations which characterize educational reforms that are based on single-factor paradigms. Part ii describes examples of these paradigms and concepts by discussing multicultural education in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and Western Europe. Is the difficulty that nation-states have trying to formulate educational policies that simultaneously respect the cultural integrity of students from diverse groups, help students attain the knowledge and skills needed to live productive lives, and help students develop a commitment to the overarching ideals and ethos of the nation-state. The final part of the book is devoted to a consideration of the rationale and components of an effective multicultural teacher-education program, and a summary of the major issues raised in the book, together with an outline agenda for policy and action.
