Publication Date 30 Jan 2018
OverviewHuman Diversity in Education: An Intercultural Approach prepares teachers and other human-service providers to teach and interact more effectively with the diverse pool of students they are certain to encounter and help them to create an accepting and welcoming learning environment for all. It uses a research-based approach with cross-cultural and intercultural emphasis. The ninth edition provides a broad treatment of the various forms of diversity common in today's schools including nationality ethnicity race religion gender social class language acquisition and use sexual orientation health concerns and disability. We also maintain its research-based approach with an increased cross-cultural and intercultural emphasis. We continue to stress that it is both at the level of the individual teacher as well as the organizational structure of the school where significant change must occur with regard to how diversity is understood and accommodated.
