For preservice and in-service teachers and educators. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com) Annotation. In this Fourth Edition of her best-selling book, renowned scholar Sonia Nieto explores the meaning, necessity, and benefits of multicultural education for students of all backgrounds. Intended for preservice and in-service teachers and educators, "Affirming Diversity, 4/e" looks at how personal, social, political, cultural, and educational factors affect the success or failure of students in today's classroom. Expanding upon the popular case-study approach, the Fourth Edition examines the lives of 18 real students who are affected by multicultural education, or a lack thereof. Topics include racial, linguistic, religious, cultural, and sexual diversity. Social justice is firmly embedded in this view of multicultural education, and teachers are encouraged to work for social change in their classrooms, schools, and communities."@en ;
