Diverse Society Diverse Classrooms (Paperback)
Critical, Creative, Cooperative and Interculturally Competent Learners and Teachers - Ready for the 21st Century
Our classrooms are multicultural, even where there are no learners from minority ethnic backgrounds. All of our learners have different cultures: socioeconomic status, gender, religion, ethnicity, sexuality, health and other factors contribute to these differences. We continue to find learners for whom traditional teaching approaches don’t work - so we need to provide active, creative learning environments and methods to reach all learners and give them an equal chance to thrive and learn.
This book is a practical toolkit for teachers, trainee teachers, and others active in the field of education. The main focus is on the application of a range of co-operative learning approaches, and how to use them with diverse groups of learners.
