RE: [xmca] References on Teaching to a diverse classroom

Dear David,

Perhaps you have already heard about it, but this is considered a standard:

Multicultural Education: Issues and Perspectives
James A. Banks
John Wiley and Sons, 2009
ISBN	0470483288, 9780470483282

Multicultural Education is a reader for educators that consists of articles written by the top scholars in the field. It helps them understand the concepts, paradigms, and explanations needed to become more effective practitioners in culturally, racially and language diverse classrooms. Each chapter now incorporates new theoretical, conceptual, and research developments in the field. A new chapter focuses on gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender issues. Every statistical table, figure, and chart has also been updated to present the most current information. Educators will gain insight that they'll be able to apply in the classroom.

I would be happy if you post an overview of the responses on the XMCA list. I look forward to it.

Subject: [xmca] References on Teaching to a diverse classroom

Dear colleagues,

I urgently need references on practical recommendations for teaching a  
diverse classroom and empirical studies on the topic, particularly on  
successful teaching practices. I am also looking for references and  
definitions on diversity within the classroom (which may vary  
depending on the dimension one is interested in gender, race,  
religious, ability level, and so on).

Your help will be appreciated,


David Preiss
