Raising Multicultural Awareness in Higher Education is written for teacher-candidates who are becoming culturally responsible and informed reflective practitioners. It is divided into eleven chapters and follows an organic exploration of theory and practice. The individual chapters of the textbook are broken down into two parts, (1) theory and (2) practical applications. These two distinct parts evolve as explorations of (1) self and other and (2) teaching and learning. As readers explore the contents of the textbook and carry out the suggested teaching and learning exercises, they will find themselves equipped with a toolkit for addressing multicultural education concerns.
