Summary
This book has a dual focus: how to teach diverse students, and how to teach students to deal with diversity. The author integrates three broad themes in his approach. The first is the role of the teacher in helping all students to learn and to accept personal responsibility for learning, which requires facilitative teaching based on constructivist principles. The second is a developmental view of human diversity, where diversity represents not a 'deviation' from some sort of 'norm, ' but rather variations on the common theme of humanity. The third theme explores seven guiding principles that the author believes can help educators to teach for diversity. Together these three themes provide a grounding that teachers will find useful as they strive to foster a positive learning environment and to select instructional strategies and materials that exemplify a value for human diversity
