Today, teachers are struggling to develop lesson plans for their increasingly multicultural and diverse student population. What do they do and how do they do it? The sharing of ideas among teachers is the only way they can enhance their lessons and increase their awareness. This book gives educators a unique opportunity -- it illustrates the "how" of multicultural education once the "why" is understood. Teachers and administrators have been waiting for a book like this and here it is! Here are real, working classroom teachers struggling with the issue of multicultural education on a variety of levels, in various content areas, and through individual personal interests. These teachers tell their stories, present their curriculum units, discuss their concerns, and describe themselves -- all with the aim of helping other classroom teachers find their own answers about what to do and how to do it. Above all, this book is an opportunity for teachers to be heard as they struggle with the area of teaching for a changing and increasingly multicultural classroom and world. This book is the perfect tool for teachers, educators, and school administrators alike.
