Description

Valerie Pang's DIVERSITY AND EQUITY IN THE CLASSROOM bridges theory and practice using a student-centered and culture-centered approach based on a philosophy of social justice and equal outcomes for all. Students will learn why they should think about and value student culture as well as how to weave those values into the curriculum and classroom. Organized around social characteristics in response to the reality of people's multiple identities, the text emphasizes the intersectionality of diverse identities and promotes teachers' self-reflection of their own biases. Guided by social constructivism as the cognitive foundation for learning, the text's extensive strategies and methods help teachers learn how to address prejudice and integrate culturally relevant teaching in their curriculum and classroom instruction. Checklists, teaching tips, and tools for classroom use are highlighted throughout the text and available as Professional Resource Downloads in the online MindTap.
