Human Diversity in Education: An Intercultural Approach prepares new teachers for the certainty of change and the wide range of diversity found in today’s classrooms. It guides future teachers to help diverse young people develop the skills needed to take their places as responsible, reflective, and active citizens in a global society. The chapters’ Case Studies introduce students to an array of international and intercultural opportunities that will enhance their own global perspectives and exposure, while preparing them for situations they may encounter in the workplace and community. Accompanying questions and critical incidents assist students in exploring how they would react when faced with similar situations and challenges. Human Diversity in Education incorporates coverage of current events and relevant legislation throughout the book to ensure students are familiar with the landscape and issues teachers face in today's classrooms.
