Summary
"Portraits of Teachers in Multicultural Settings: A Critical Literacy Approach is a collection of chapters by leading practitioners in the field. This text integrates multicultural education, transformative education, and critical literacy based on the foundations of critical pedagogy." "The authors provide methodologies that promote respect for individual cultural and linguistic differences, and an equitable environment that promotes learning experiences leading to personal and career growth. Critical educators recognize that they cannot change students' circumstances or environments. However, they can act as agents of change through critically examining how traditional education promotes or hinders their students' success or failure. This text provides specific examples of ways teachers can incorporate multicultural education and critical pedagogy in their classrooms."--Jacket
