Teaching and Learning in a Diverse World
Teaching and Learning in a Diverse World: Multicultural Education for Young Children, 4th Edition | Patricia G. Ramsey
4 posts | 1 to read
How can we create truly multicultural classrooms? In this new edition of her popular text, renowned early childhood educator Patricia Ramsey draws on a wide range of research and practice from different communities around the world to further explore the complexities of raising and teaching young children in a world fraught with societal divisions and inequities. Using engaging examples and stories, this comprehensive volume offers concrete suggestions to encourage teachers to reflect on their own histories and experiences and to challenge and rethink their assumptions and attitudes toward children and teaching. This new, up-to-date edition describes research-based classroom practices to engage children in exploring the complexities of race, economic inequities, immigration, environmental issues and sustainability, gender and sexual orientation and identities, abilities and disabilities. It also addresses the challenges of teaching in the context of globalization, pervasive social media, and increased standards and accountability.

It‘s too late at night to run around the house looking for #DiverseBooks but I did find some on the nearest shelves. Most of the LGBTQ+ representation are in my SFF books upstairs. SFF is pretty good for diverse characters.

I‘m going to take a break from Americanah now and read Maus, so it occurs to me that my #24in48 reading is a lot more diverse this time around. I think I somehow ended up with all white males last time.


mydearwatson I really want to read _The Tale of Genji_, but I also don‘t want to lug it around 😆. 12mo
Leniverse @mydearwatson Ah, but mine is a two volume edition. 😉 I also have the complete Journey to the West, in four volumes. Or rather, I bought them for the spouse and we're buddy reading the first volume next month. 😁 12mo
mydearwatson @Leniverse I hadn‘t heard of that one! 12mo
Leniverse @mydearwatson Journey to the West is perhaps better known as the tv series “Monkey”. My spouse is a big fan. 12mo

These are 2 diverse reads that I read in 2017

Maureen_Long I enjoyed The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society when my P.E.O. chapter selected it as the book we would read and discuss. 12mo

Recent events have really brought to light the need for diverse books in the classroom. I feel it is my responsibility to teach love, empathy, equality, and tolerance. Because of this, I've researched books to add to my classroom and can't wait to get them into the hands of children. You can help by donating a book @ http://a.co/7mwodeS ❤️🤝📚

EllieDottie Thank you for teaching our kids!! 2y

I've not read the book I've tagged above but it looks like an appropriate response or companion to this article about the challenges of encouraging diversity in children's literature.

Suzze Great picture! 3y
Libby1 I thought so, too, @Suzze . It was what drew me to the article. 3y
