Features:
  • CULTURAL COMPETENCE: A PRIMER FOR TEACHERS focuses on the development of cultural competence, which entails a combination of awareness and sensitivity, various bodies of knowledge, and a set of skills that underlie effective cross-cultural teaching.
  • This text successfully integrates theoretical and practical knowledge in an accessible, meaningful manner, enhanced by interesting anecdotes, personal experiences, and real-world examples.
  • The author pays in-depth attention to a number of frequently overlooked critical topics, including bicultural families, isolated students (and teachers) of color, and white culture.
  • The final six chapters discuss individual ethnicities (African American, Latino/Latina, Asian American and Pacific Islander, American Indian/Alaska Native, Arab and Muslim Americans, and European American), and include detailed original interviews with multicultural educators such as William Cross, Valerie Ooka Pang, and Christine Sleeter.
  • New! A NEW organization divides chapters into three logical parts: Foundations for Becoming Culturally Competent, Becoming Culturally Competent in the Classroom and Community, and Working Competently with All Students.
