Becoming a Multicultural Educator is a core textbook for use by pre-service and in-service PK-12 educators in courses on multicultural education / diversity. The text addresses how teachers can incorporate the knowledge they gain about other cultures into their classroom practice.
In meeting the need of training teachers better in how to work with a diverse population, this text offers both solid theory and a very user-friendly practice component that focuses on showing teachers how to apply that theory effectively in the classroom. The book begins by focusing on essential questions and theoretical concepts about multicultural education, then leads readers through experiences to heighten their own cultural awareness, knowledge base, and skills set, and concludes with demonstrating how teachers can apply the concepts in classroom and schoolwide settings.
