Multicultural education as social activism by Christine E Sleeter( )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,990 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Connecting multicultural education with political issues of power and struggle, this book explores what multicultural education means to white people, given the unequal racial power relations in the U.S. and worldwide. It examines connections between race, gender, and social class, particularly as these connections play out for white women. While taking a feminist perspective, the author is also wary of the power white middle class women exercise in defining what counts as gender issues. Throughout the book, Sleeter argues that multicultural education was born in political struggle and can never meaningfully be disconnected from politics. Ultimately the quest for schooling for social justice is a political quest rather than a technical issue."--BOOK JACKET

Un-standardizing curriculum : multicultural teaching in the standards-based classroom by Christine E Sleeter( Book )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2017 in English and held by 1,127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How can teachers learn to teach rich, academically rigorous multicultural curricula under current standardization constraints? In her new book, Christine Sleeter offers a much-needed framework to help teachers take on this challenge. By contrasting key curricular assumptions with those of multicultural education, she reveals the aspects they share as well as the conceptual and political differences between them. Sleeter makes, a strong case for what teachers can do to "unstandardize" knowledge in their own classrooms, while working toward high standards of academic achievement."--Jacket

Teaching with Vision : Culturally Responsive Teaching in Standards-Based Classrooms by Christine E Sleeter( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 788 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, two respected scholars in teaching for social justice have gathered teachers from across the country to describe rich examples of extraordinary practice. This collection showcases the professional experience and wisdom of classroom teachers who have been navigating standards- and test-driven teaching environments in California and New York, without losing their vision of what teaching can be. Representing diverse backgrounds, schools, grade levels, subject areas, and specialties, these teachers talk personally about their practice, their challenges, and how they learned to maintain a social and pedagogical vision for their work. This book is essential reading for new teachers who are struggling to make their teaching inspiring, creative, and culturally responsive, especially those who are working in less than supportive environments. -- Publisher Description

Critical multiculturalism : theory and praxis by Stephen May( Book )

12 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Critical multiculturalism has emerged over the last decade as a direct challenge to liberal or benevolent forms of multicultural education. By integrating and advancing various critical theoretical threads such as anti-racist education, critical race theory, and critical pedagogy, critical multiculturalism has offered a fuller analysis of oppression and institutionalization of unequal power relations in education. But what do these powerful theories really mean for classroom practice and specific disciplines? Edited by two leading authorities on multicultural education, Critical Multiculturalism: Theory and Praxis brings together international scholars of critical multiculturalism to directly and illustratively address what a transformed critical multicultural approach to education might mean for teacher education and classroom practice. Providing both contextual background and curriculum specific subject coverage ranging from language arts and mathematics to science and technology, each chapter shows how critical multiculturalism relates to praxis. As a watershed in the further development of critical multicultural approaches to education, this timely collection will be required reading for all scholars, educators and practitioners of multicultural education." -- Back cover
Developing multicultural teacher education curricula by Joseph M Larkin( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book has been developed in response to the need for teacher education programs to reconsider how they prepare beginning teachers to contribute more affirmatively to the struggle for educational equity in the schools. It begins by discussing issues involved in preparing a predominantly white preservice teacher education population for multicultural teaching and the issues faculty need to consider when redesigning coursework. Remaining chapters examine how specific courses can be redesigned and provide examples. Many practical suggestions are offered. The proposed curriculum revisions are not intended to provide an alternative to fundamental program restructuring, but they are offered in the awareness that curriculum issues are part of a broader agenda that must be addressed by teacher education programs facing the challenges of cultural diversity and educational equity. There is no single approach to multicultural curricula, but this book provides departure points for teacher educators as they develop their own curricula. References follow each chapter.

Keepers of the American dream : a study of staff development and multicultural education by Christine E Sleeter( Book )

14 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and French and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book reports an ethnographic study of thirty teachers from eighteen schools who participated in a staff development programme in multicultural education. The study examines how multicultural education was actually presented to teachers, and areas in which their classroom teaching and perception of students changed over the two-year period. Although most of the teachers reported learning a good deal, changes in their teaching and their discussions of teaching were fairly limited. After reporting the data, the book examines why changes were limited, analyzing three areas: the nature of staff development and how multicultural education was packaged; the structure of schools as institutions; and the identities and life experiences of teachers as White women, often from working class backgrounds

White bread : weaving cultural past into the present by Christine E Sleeter( )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In White Bread, readers accompany Jessica on a journey into her family's past, into herself, and into the bicultural community she teaches but does not understand. Jessica, a fictional White fifth-grade teacher, is prompted to explore her family history by the unexpected discovery of a hundred-year-old letter. Simultaneously, she begins to grapple with culture and racism, principally through discussions with a Mexican American teacher. White Bread pulls readers into a tumultuous six months of Jessica's life as she confronts many issues that turn out to be interrelated, such as why she knows so little about her family's past, why she craves community as she feels increasingly isolated, why the Latino teachers want the curriculum to be more Latino, and whether she can become the kind of teacher who sparks student learning. The storyline alternates between past and present, acquainting readers with German American communities in the Midwest during the late 1800s and early 1900s, portraits based on detailed historic excavation. What happened to these communities gives Jessica the key to unlock answers to questions that plague her. White Bread can be read simply for pleasure. It can also be used in teacher education, ethnic studies, and sociology courses. Beginning teachers may see their own struggles reflected in Jessica's classroom. People of European descent might see themselves within, rather than outside, multicultural studies. White Bread can also be used in conjunction with family history research.

Diversifying the teacher workforce : preparing and retaining highly effective teachers by Christine E Sleeter( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Diversifying the Teacher Workforce critically examines efforts to diversify the teaching force and narrow the demographic gap between who teaches and who populates U.S. classrooms. While the demographic gap is often invoked to provide a needed rationale for preparing all teachers, and especially White teachers, to work with students of color, it is far less often invoked in an effort to examine why the teaching force remains predominantly White in the first place. Based on work the National Association for Multicultural Education is engaged in on this phenomenon, this edited collec

Professional development for culturally responsive and relationship-based pedagogy( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The work presented here is a large-scale evaluation of a theory-driven school reform project in New Zealand, which focuses on improving the educational achievement of Māori students in public secondary schools. The projects conceptual underpinnings are based on Kaupapa Māori research, culturally responsive teaching, student voice, and relationship-based pedagogy. Data were produced by a research team who conducted a three-year external evaluation of the project in 22 of the 33 schools implementing its professional development initiative. The book shows the extent to which a well-conceptualized and culturally grounded program in culturally responsive pedagogy, supported by a well-conceptualized professional development program, can shift teacher practices and understandings. These shifts lead to a reduction in the achievement disparities of minoritized students, as well as support for the students as culturally located human beings. While the professional development project in this book addresses Māori students educational achievement, the studys findings and messages are applicable far beyond New Zealand, because the educational experiences of Māori people are common to many Indigenous and other minoritized peoples in countries around the world." --Publisher description
