This title is only available as a Loose-Leaf version with Pearson eText. This definitive resource gives readers a strong background in the conceptual, theoretical, and philosophical issues in multicultural education from one of the most well respected authorities in the field-James A. Banks. In the opening chapter author Banks presents his well-known and widely used concept of Dimensions of Multicultural Education to help build an understanding of how the various components of multicultural education are interrelated. He then provides vital information on preparing students to function as effective citizens in a global world; discusses the dimensions, history, and goals of multicultural education; presents the conceptual, philosophical, and research issues related to education and diversity; examines the issues involved in curriculum and teaching; looks at gender equity, disability, giftedness, and language diversity; and focuses on intergroup relations and principles for teaching and learning. This new edition incorporates new concepts, theories, research, and developments in the field of multicultural education that have occurred since the last edition was published, and features: 0133830969 / 9780133830965 Cultural Diversity and Education: Foundations, Curriculum, and Teaching, Loose-Leaf Version with Pearson eText -- Access Card Package 0133521516 / 9780133521511 Cultural Diversity and Education: Foundations, Curriculum, and Teaching, Loose-Leaf Version 0133523195 / 9780133523195 Cultural Diversity and Education: Foundations, Curriculum, and Teaching, Pearson eText -- Access Card
