Description

The fourth edition of Choosing Democracy continues to analyze the standards movement and high stakes testing, bringing this reform initiative up to date, as well as examining its effect on multicultural education.  The text maintains its critical analysis of culture, race, class and gender as these apply to schools; and provides strategies, lessons, and resources for classroom use. This edition further develops the central role of democracy in multicultural education and offers new materials on gang behavior and bullying.  A new section in Chapter 12 deals with the many ways teachers can use the Internet to assist students and supplement traditional teaching materials.

NEW! Chapter 12 has been substantially revised to become a Multicultural Curriculum chapter including the issues of standards and test-based accountability in this era of reform.  The chapter will help teachers looking to make changes to their curriculum. This chapter also includes coverage of the limits of some assessments.
