As schools grow more and more vulnerable to the whims of profiteers and, as a result, become less and less a sacred public space of learning and justice, the voices of everyday educators and students are increasingly marginalized. This is the tyranny of neoliberal school reform: silence the people who know education, the people committed to equity and justice, and elevate the voices and desires of the privileged few whose knowledge of education is peripheral and profit-driven. Talking Back and Moving Forward: An Education Revolution in Poetry and Prose is a collective response to this tyranny, a collecting rallying cry for reclaiming our schools. It is a chorus of voices from teachers, educators, and educational justice advocates who refuse to be silenced—who are standing up and responding to the imposition of damaging school reform initiatives. Unconfined by the conventions of the traditional scholarly voice, the contributors use poetry, memoir, short stories, and photography, choosing the expressions that most effectively capture their experiences and their demands for educational and social justice.

Product Description: Many saw the 2008 election of Barack Obama as a sign that America had moved past the issue of race, that a colorblind society was finally within reach.

The drive to internationalize higher education has seen the focus shift in recent years towards its defining element, the curriculum. As the point of connection between broader institutional strategies and the student experience, the curriculum plays a key role in the success or failure of the internationalization agenda. Yet despite much debate, the role and power of curriculum internationalization is often unappreciated. This has meant that critical questions, including what it means and how it can be achieved in different disciplines, have not been consistently or strategically addressed. This volume breaks new ground in connecting theory and practice in internationalizing the curriculum in different disciplinary and institutional contexts. An extensive literature review, case studies and action research projects provide valuable insights into the concept of internationalization of the curriculum. Best practice in curriculum design, teaching and learning in higher education are applied specifically to the process of internationalizing the curriculum. Examples from different disciplines and a range of practical resources and ideas are provided. Topics covered include: why internationalize the curriculum?; designing internationalized learning outcomes; using student diversity to internationalize the curriculum; blockers and enablers to internationalization of the curriculum; assessment in an internationalized curriculum; connecting internationalization of the curriculum with institutional goals and student learning. Internationalizing the Curriculum provides invaluable guidance to university managers, academic staff, professional development lecturers and support staff as well as students and scholars interested in advancing theory and practice in this important area.

This second edition of the "classic" text retains its original focus on children's understanding of race, socioeconomic class, culture and gender, while also expanding the definition and scope of multicultural education. The author introduces new themes into multiculturalism by showing us how environmental exploitation and consumerism are related to social inequities and by demonstrating how a respect for the natural world can and must be woven into early childhood education. Citing classroom experiences and personal anecdotes, this volume shows us - often quite humorously - that the road to raising and teaching children with multicultural perspectives may not be an easy one, but it is one filled with hope and joy. The final chapter is written as a story - a vision of how individuals and institutions can change and create a more caring and just world. This book provides practical suggestions and examples of how to incorporate a multicultural perspective in all of our day-to-day interactions with children - from making up classroom rules to planning field trips. There is also a valuable appendix of "Suggested Books for Children".

Raising Race Questions explores the opportunities and challenges that arise when White teachers are willing to deal directly with race and the role it plays in their classrooms. Based on lessons gleaned from experienced White teachers in a variety of settings, it lays out a path for using inquiry to develop sustained, productive engagement with challenging--and common--questions about race. It suggests that guilt and conflict need not be the end point of raising race questions and offers alternative destinations: antiracist classrooms, positive racial identities, and a restoration of the wholeness that racism undermines.

This book is the third volume in the series on Research in Educational Diversity and Excellence. The goal of this series is to bring issues of diversity and educational risk to the forefront of national attention in order to assist the nation's diverse students at risk of failure to achieve academic excellence. This series focuses on critical issues in the education of linguistic and cultural minority students and those placed at risk by factors of race, poverty, and geographic location. The purpose of the present book is to summarize and discuss recent perspectives, research, and practices related to the use of educational technology in multicultural settings. Technology that is already ubiquitous in our daily lives brings a myriad of issues to the area of education. Although educational systems should be geared to address challenges appropriately, the systems should be designed and developed to provide opportunities to take advantage of technology use. This book is noteworthy in that it presents a variety of theoretical and practical considerations for technology use in diverse multicultural contexts. Consisting of 12 chapters, the book (a) proposes theoretical concerns for understanding technological learning environments today and envisions the potential impact of future technology use and (b) examines technology tools and models that have been used for interventions, programs, and projects and measures and documents specific outcomes and challenges involving complex interactions within low-income and languageminority families and students.
