Teaching young children in multicultural classrooms: issues, concepts, and strategies [Second Edition]
In addition to being a text for those studying to become early childhood teachers, Teaching Young Children in Multicultural Classrooms: Issues, Concepts, and Strategies, 2E is a comprehensive resource for practicing professionals who work with young children every day. The authors share their own experiences as both immigrants and instructors to provide historical, theoretical, political, and sociological aspects of multicultural education as it relates to young children. In addition, the authors provide practical guidelines, curriculum suggestions, and techniques for use in the classroom. Also included in this edition are new chapter features for comprehension and application, as well as updated content on demographics, children with special needs, and children's book lists. In addition, readers can follow Barbara, a kindergarten teacher, through the chapters to see how she handles the dilemmas and issues that arise in her day-to-day work. The authors have worked to address the very fluid nature of terminology and trends within the field. A portfolio experience based on INTASC standards has also been included to help students make the important connection from what they are reading to how that content applies in a classroom setting.
