Dictionary of multicultural education by Carl A Grant( Book )

16 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 885 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The focus of this dictionary is the meanings and perspectives of various terms that are used in multicultural education. Contributors have often addressed the literal meanings of words and terms as well as contextual meanings and examples that helped create those meanings. Like other dictionaries, this one is arranged alphabetically, but it goes beyond ordinary dictionaries in the depth of its concern with multicultural education and diversity. Some entries define commonly used terms. Others are court cases and legal precedents, while still others are methodological and theoretical-conceptual entries. Biographical sketches are not included, since a dictionary of this scope and size could not do justice to the many people who have contributed to multicultural education. Nor are terms that describe groups of people included, although the intellectual traditions that have emerged from the struggles of these people have been defined. Standardization of the vocabulary of multicultural education is necessary for communication within the academy and across the many political and social boundaries that must be spanned to make multicultural education a reality.

Research and multicultural education : from the margins to the mainstream by Carl A Grant( Book )

16 editions published between 1992 and 2016 in English and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is written to encourage research into multicultural education and to help scholars think through some of the problems and issues inherent in doing research in this area. Presently, multicultural education is receiving major national and international attention, not only within the educational community, but within society at large. Demographic changes in society are requiring people who never had to deal with one another to work together. This contact among and between different groups of people is taking place in political, social and economic contexts that are dominated by an ever-widening gulf between the 'haves' and 'have nots'." "Schools now more than in the recent past are being required to respond to the challenge of educating different groups of students about each other and to making schooling equal and equitable for all. Educators at all levels and in all roles are having to confront the racism, sexism and classism that they have, in a large part, ignored but that has continued to hound them with an increasing intensity. Quality research is needed to help educators understand and resolve this quagmire and to help schools become portals to life opportunities and choices for all students. This volume is intended to facilitate the production of this research." "Whilst this volume is not a primer for doing multicultural research, it includes discussions about many important areas that must be considered when doing multicultural research. It responds to the felt needs of a number of scholars, who have a serious interest in researching and writing in this area; these researchers are often frustrated because there is a lack of discussion, directions and support for doing multicultural research. Similarly, these scholars have criticized the paucity of multicultural education research studies. This book is an attempt to respond to both of these valid criticisms. It offers chapters about doing research in multicultural education and makes contributions to the research base in multicultural education by including chapters that are themselves studies in multicultural education and it critiques national and state multicultural policy initiates."--BOOK JACKET
Multicultural education : commitments, issues, and applications by Carl A Grant( Book )

7 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The booklet presents 18 articles reflecting varying views of multicultural education. Although the definitions of multicultural education differ, and although the viewpoints and backgrounds of the authors are diverse, the articles unanimously emphasize the awareness of cultural pluralism and respect for all people. Intended as a resource for curriculum developers, teachers, administrators, and researchers, the document begins with a statement by the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development which interprets multicultural education as a continuous, systematic process that will broaden and diversify as it develops. The statement stresses the right of different cultures to exist and the importance of a multicultural foundation to the educational experience of all students. Other articles focus on multiethnic encounters as part of the unstudied curriculum; legal redress to denial of rights and justice to minority students; anthropological aids to understanding the culture of the school; ways of combatting sexism and ethnic stereotypes in school and society; the international dimensions of cultural pluralism; and the need for research which will be of help in developing education that is multicultural. Three articles discuss the specifics of curriculum design and multicultural materials and instructional materials. The last four articles provide the classroom teacher with ideas for activities they might use to illustrate the concept of multiculturalism as part of their classroom curriculum. (Author/DB)

Global constructions of multicultural education : theories and realities by Carl A Grant( Book )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book tells us how various global regions are dealing with three major concerns within the field of multicultural education: *the conceptualization and realization of "difference" and "diversity"; *the inclusion and exclusion of social groups within a definition of multicultural education; and *the effects of power on relations between and among groups identified under the multicultural education umbrella. All of the chapter authors pay attention to these themes, but, at the same time, they bring their particular interests and perspectives to the book, addressing issues, such as linguistic, racial, ethnic, and religious diversity; class; educational inequalities; teacher education; conceptualizations of citizenship; and questions of identity construction. In addition, the authors offer both historical and social contexts for their analytical discussion of the ideals and practices of multicultural education in a particular region. This is not a book that tells us about multicultural education with an international "twist"; it provides readers with different ways to think, talk, and do research about issues of "diversity," "difference," and the effects of power as they relate to education
