This important new book for college teachers, administrators, trainers, workshop leaders, and prospective secondary school teachers challenges of teaching in institutions and classrooms that are increasingly diverse. The volume's introductory chapter, which discusses the meaning of multicultural teaching, is followed by more than twenty essays by faculty from different disciplines, each articulating the multiple dimensions and components of multicultural teaching. They discuss their own teaching and classes in terms of course content, process and discourse, and diversity among faculty and students in the classroom. The book concludes with a roundtable discussion by the authors about the meaning of multicultural teaching, a section on responses to questions about conflict in the classroom, and a list of exercises for classroom and workshop use. Rather than representing a homogeneous view of multicultural teaching, this volume reflects the debate and dialogue that surround the issue. While colleges and their faculty are searching to adapt their teaching to the rapidly changing demographics on campus, there are very few models for teachers. Multicultural Teaching in the University integrates new scholarship that reflects a more expansive notion of knowledge, and suggests new ways to communicate with diverse populations of students.
