Do caring, trusting human relationships among teachers and students in multicultural classrooms produce higher levels of achievement? Is simply presenting cultural history, literature, and rituals sufficient for multicultural education? Should schools do more for immigrant students than just teach English? In this book Valerie Pang affirms that teachers must develop comprehensive instructional programs based on caring, culture, and community. Pang takes a unique approach to multicultural education, focusing on the ethics of caring and social justice. Her text is reader-friendly and jargon-free with an upbeat, anecdotal, conversational tone and narrative style in order to directly address and encourage the reader to think about complex issues in multicultural teaching.

Multicultural Education: A Caring-Centered, Reflective Approach provides the practical advice needed for mid- to lower-level, more applied teacher education programs. It asks pre-service teachers to identify and challenge their own biases and values regarding multicultural issues before developing a caring, multiculturally-sensitive teaching program --- one that addresses specific multicultural needs, provides individual and particular feedback to students, and builds a strong sense of family in the classroom. Each copy of the text includes the FREE book, Multicultural Education and the Internet: Intersections and Integrations.
