The first edition of this book was introduced more than a decade ago. In those ten years, the complexion of the United States has begun to change with the arrival of many immigrants, and as a country, we have continued to struggle over the issues of racism, sexism, and so on. This new edition of Diversity in the Classroom builds on the theories presented in the first edition, now incorporating the perspectives of Michael Cole, Howard Gardner, Lev Vygotsky, Sonia Nieto, Lisa Delpit, and Jamie Wurzel. Frances Kendall addresses many aspects of antibias education--from the stages of child development to strategies for educating parents--focusing particularly on the teacher's role as an agent of change. Kendall promotes teachers' self-awareness and provides guidelines for setting up multicultural environments and curricula. Two appendixes provide bibliographies of books to increase awareness in both adults and children.

Frances E. Kendall is a consultant on organizational change.
