Written by the leading authority in the field, the Sixth Edition of this classic text has been revised, reorganized and updated to reflect current and emerging theory, research, and scholarship in the fields of ethnic studies and multicultural education.Divided into six parts, the Sixth Edition emphasizes that the main goal of the multicultural curriculum should be to help students develop the ability to make reflective decisions so that they can, through thoughtful action, influence their personal, social and civic worlds and help to make them more democratic and just.Part I presents a rationale for incorporating ethnic content into the mainstream curriculum. Goals and key concepts for the multicultural curriculum are also discussed in Part I. Parts II through V contain chapters on the major ethnic groups in the United States. These chapters contain: (1) Chronologies of key events, (2) historical overviews of groups, (3) illustrative key concepts and teaching strategies, (4) annotated bibliographies for elementary and secondary school students and teaches.Part VI highlights and summarizes the major points discussed in the previous chapters and illustrates how students can use the information and strategies in Parts I through V to develop and teach multicultural units and curricula that focus on two or more ethnic groups.The Sixth Edition is designed to help teachers conceptualize, design, and implement a democratic, thoughtful, and just curriculum that honors and reflects the experiences, hopes, and dreams of all Americans. It describes the knowledge, concepts, strategies, and resources that teachers need to implement a democratic curriculum by transforming the mainstream curriculum and incorporating content and concepts about diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural groups.
