Encyclopedia of Diversity in Education( )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The diversity education literature, both nationally and internationally, is broad and diffuse. Consequently, there needs to be a systematic and logical way to organize and present the state of research for students and professionals. American citizens need to understand the dynamics of their increasingly diverse communities and institutions and the global world in which we live, work, and lead. With continually evolving information on diversity policies, practices, and programs, it is important to have one place where students, scholars, teachers, and policymakers can examine and explore research, policy, and practice issues and find answers to important questions about how diversity in U.S. education--enriched with theories, research and practices in other nations--are explained and communicated, and how they affect institutional change at both the K-12 and postsecondary levels

These experts discuss and identify the shared issues and possibilities that exist when educating for national unity and cultural diversity. Diversity and Citizenship Education: Global Perspectives presents compelling case studies and examples of successful programs and practices from twelve nations, discusses problems that arise when societies are highly stratified along race, cultural, and class lines, and describes guidelines and benchmarks that practicing educators can use to structure citizenship education programs that balance unity and diversity. The book covers a broad range of issues and includes vital information on such topics as Migration, citizenship, and education The challenge of racialized citizenship in the United States The contribution of the struggles by Indians and Blacks for citizenship and recognition in Brazil Crises of citizenship education and ethnic issues in Germany, Russia, and South Africa Conflicts between religious and ethnic factions Diversity, globalization, and democratic education

Chapters one and two define the nature of multiethnic education and measure the distance between societal and school curricula. Chapter three provides insights into the planning necessary for teacher preparation. Chapters four and five describe the conflict between the home cultures of the students and the culture of the school and focus on viewing ethnic identities and group behaviors as positive sources of strength. Chapter six describes the conflict between the learning styles of ethnic students and those favored by the school. Chapter seven discusses language diversity while chapter eight emphasizes awareness as the way to become an effective cross-cultural counselor. Chapters nine and ten suggest alternatives to traditional testing and explain goals and characteristics of the multiethnic curriculum. Chapter eleven describes one program, while chapter twelve focuses on school-community cooperation. The final two chapters discuss traditional assumptions about schooling and suggest guidelines for training teachers. An afterword highlights key points and proposes needed actions. (CK)

Twelve authors present new conceptual frameworks for studying about ethnic groups, and for analyzing American society, and describe promising strategies and materials in this 43rd yearbook. The book is arranged into three major parts. In Part One, the authors provide perceptive analyses of institutional racism, social justice and power relationships in America, and also suggest ways in which the teacher can deal with both individual and institutional racism. In addition, one author describes how ethnic content can be used to spearhead instructional reform. The next five chapters in Part Two focus on the historical and sociological problems of ethnic minority groups, and describe ways in which the teacher can incorporate their experiences into the social studies curriculum. Authors are various members of ethnic groups and speak from their perspective. The final part of this book explores the problems of two groups victimized by stereotypes and cultural assaults -- white ethnics and women. Strategy exercises are appended to several chapters.
