Book Description

Originally published in 1989. The practical application of multicultural education to the British elementary school classroom is discussed. The first part explores the historical development of multicultural education, considering sex and class inequality and local and national educational practices; and makes suggestions for improvement. Part two suggests practical ideas for explicit and hidden curricula. Seven themes for ethnically diverse topics are suggested and for each area, teacher aims and pupil objectives are defined and potential resources are listed. Five areas of aspects of social and personal development in a multicultural context are then explored. Includes a foreword by Lord Swann.
