Combining insights from multicultural education theory and research with real-life classroom stories, this demonstrates that all students will perform better on multiple measures of achievement when teaching is filtered through their own cultural experiences. This new edition has been revised to include a new section on standards and diversity; new examples of culturally diverse curriculum content; an emphasis on positive, action-driven possibilities in student-teacher relationships; and new material on culturally diverse communication.
