Cultural Journeys: Multicultural Literature for Elementary and Middle School Students

Cultural Journeys: Multicultural Literature for Elementary and Middle School Students

Published by RowmanLittlefield

As multicultural education is becoming integral to the core curriculum, teachers often implement this aspect into their courses through literature. However, standards and criteria to teach and promote active discussion about this literature are sparse. Cultural Journeys introduces pre-service and experienced teachers to the use of literature to promote active discussions that lead students to think about racial diversity. More than just an annotated list of books for children, Pamela S. Gates and Dianne L. Hall Mark provide systematic guidelines that teachers can use throughout their careers to evaluate multicultural literature for students in grades K-8. At the same time, the text leads the reader to a deeper understanding of how to use multicultural literature throughout the entire curriculum and not just during specially designated months or time periods. With the example unit plans and extensive annotated bibliography, this book is a valuable resource that pre-service teachers will utilize when they begin teaching and in-service teachers will reference repeatedly during their planning periods.

Teaching about cultures and tolerance have never been more important, particularly in the face of more and more immigration to this country. Our authors provide essays on building collections that reflect diversity followed by sample units of instruction that emphasize the use of the diverse collection in understanding various cultures. Topics cover picture books, follore, historical fiction, nonfiction, realistic fiction, and poetry. Certainly, every teacher librarian needs to keep cultural recognition and activities on the front burner – reminding ourselves constantly to reach out to everyone. It is not something we can let go until a school disturbance makes us try to solve prejudice and misunderstanding after the fact.
