A supplement for Children’s Literature and Reading Methods courses.

 

Written by one of the most highly regarded names in the field of children’s literature, this compact guide to selecting high-quality examples of multicultural literature offers future teachers the broad-based introduction they need to the literature of the many cultures that comprise America today. Coverage focuses on three main ideas: incorporating the best multicultural books into the classroom, honoring and respecting both the literature and the cultures inhabiting the classroom, and using quality children’s literature to motivate readers while nurturing a culturally responsive classroom.

From the Back Cover:

Successful teaching means, in part, developing a keen sensitivity to cultural differences, creating a community of learners who are culturally responsive to one another.  Exploring multicultural literature and its oral traditions is a good beginning for teachers to better understand their students and the significant influence that cultural backgrounds and experiences have on student behavior and student interactions.  The third edition of Multicultural Children’s Literature: Through the Eyes of Many Children explores the oral traditions, history, and cultures represented in a wide array of literature. In separate chapters on African American, Latino, Asian, Jewish, Middle Eastern, and Native American literature, you will observe how cultures are influenced by history and recognize cultural values, beliefs, and philosophies shared through its literature.  Using a five-phase approach, you will learn how to determine whether multicultural titles written for children and young adults are authentic examples of the cultures they portray. With that knowledge, you can engage students in a rich heritage of literature that will reveal commonalities and help them establish mutual respect for each other and for all cultures.
