    Brilliant book for anyone interested in education, at any level/age group. The shared stories and essays on what works, didn't work, why, how, and where to go for help, is amazing. The numerous educators who shared their insights, their life work, and their passion for providing the best possible learning environments/curriculum for their students, are emblematic of so many others in the profession.

The shared stories and essays on what works, didn't work, why, how, and where to go for help, is amazing. The numerous educators who shared their insights, their life work, and their passion for providing the best possible learning environments/curriculum for their students, are emblematic of so many others in the profession. Ethnicity (the idea of race) is front and center throughout. Whether discussing opportunity and access, language, power, culture, politics, economics, or historical realities, the authors presented vivid portraits of how the lessons forced students to think in new ways (creatively & critically) and question previous learning. This collection of works should be required reading for every teacher (and administrator), regardless of who or where they teach.

    I can’t believe how much I needed this book. I have never been so glad to be assigned a book to read for an assignment. It was eye opening and touched upon diversity that ranged from race, ethnicity, linguistics, curriculum, socioeconomics etc. I highly recommend this for ALL teachers, and even those who are not going into the education field too!

    I truly enjoyed the articles and journals in this compilation, however, it was decidely one sided. The author should contact the Hoover Institution and would be presenting a more realistic view of multicultural education thereby ...

    Read it cause I had to, not because I chose it from a shelf. Not bad. Essays. For me, common knowledge.

    So I've updated my rating... true some of these articles repeat the same theme or ramble a bit too long, but overall I'm still rethinking and updating my perspective on how I've been taught and how I'll continue to educate so well worth the investment.

Rethinking Multiculural Education, is a thoughtful collection of essays and articles, edited by Wayne Au, which seek to present the many views and options about multicultural education, explain why it’s an important topic for reflection, and give practical advice for how teachers can begin promoting multicultural education in their classrooms and schools. Au argues that the definition of multicultural education has not been fully explored or embraced by educators and needs a more thoughtful approach in order to fully integrate and benefit from the diversity of students who are within our educational system. Multiculural education is more then celebrating a culture by teaching about its history, or enjoying traditional food and holidays. Instead it is “part of a larger, more serious struggle for social justice…anti-systematic racism, colinalization, and cultural oppression.” (p. 3).

    this book, really a series of articles about multicultural education, though quite redundant at times, was actually a wonderful take on the considerations that we need take when designing educational programs. In a country where we do not want to leave children at the starting gate, where we hyper-structure everything to fit into a series of standardized tests, are we really doing what we are intending, or rather crippling the children who these very programs are designed to help?

    Read for Diversity in Education class. I thought it was an interesting mix of articles that pushed hard in areas that need pushing. At the same time, I believe everything needs to be taken with a grain of salt, because the authors did have an agenda.
