Reseña del editor:

In Understanding Human Differences,readers are introduced to sound research grounded in various behavioral and social sciences while featuring a stimulating inquiry approach to support reflection on issues of critical importance in multicultural education in today's diverse society. The conceptual framework of the book focuses on three areas: culture, the individual, and institutions. Readers are encouraged to examine individual concerns; understand the cultural/historical contexts; and explore such areas as racism, classism, sexism, heterosexism, and ableism. Included is a focus on changes already achieved or that need to be implemented in schools and other areas of society to create a more just society.

Contraportada:

This popular text is grounded in research conducted in various behavioral and social sciences–including education, psychology, history, sociology, biology, anthropology, women’s studies, and ethnic studies–to give readers a solid understanding of the multicultural/multiethnic issues of critical importance in today’s diverse society. The conceptual framework of the book focuses on three areas: culture, the individual, and institutions.

The author uses a stimulating inquiry approach to make the content more interesting to students, to encourage student discussion and debate on the issues, and to ultimately promote a deeper understanding of the material. Each chapter features questions regarding diversity issues, with responses based on research from a variety of disciplines and from the author’s experience.

The new edition has been carefully updated with new content in many critical areas, including:

  • long-term effects of preschool education and the influence of attendance for low-income students in middle schools
  • important issues dealing with social media and other forms of digital media
  • the practices stemming from anti-Muslim attitudes
  • why zero tolerance policies don’t work in K-12 schools
  • civil implications of racial profiling
  • how anti-immigrant activities effect all immigrants
  • the concept of white privilege
  • the needs of homeless and low-income children
  • the consequences of racial disparities for people of color
  • how changing attitudes among younger Americans has become a major factor behind shifts in federal policy
  • the rights of students with disabilities
