What is included with this book?


This best-selling text explores the meaning, necessity, and benefits of multicultural education–in a sociopolitical context–for students of all backgrounds.


Sonia Nieto and Patty Bode look 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, Affirming Diversity: The Sociopolitical Context of Multicultural Education examines the lives of real students who are affected by multicultural education, or the lack of it. This social justice view of multicultural education encourages teachers to work for social change in their classrooms, schools, and communities.

Patty Bode combines nearly twenty years in PK-12 classrooms, and a decade in higher education, to inform social justice perspectives in her current work as the principal of Amherst-Pelham Regional Middle School in Massachusetts Public Schools.
