There is no single "cookbook" approach to working effectively with a diverse classroom population--and that's why this book is so useful. Its practical, research-based approach prepares educators to meet the unique demands of their intercultural interactions armed with knowledge that assures proper, responsive, and ethical intercultural communication. Based on current research and enriched by the individual voices of those with diverse worldviews, the book provides abundant practical, theoretically sound approaches for addressing the needs of those who are marginalized in today's classroom. Designed to engage readers intellectually and emotionally, this distinctive book will move you from the realm of understanding (head), through personal valuing (heart), and finally to applying (voice) the information provided.
