Based on the conceptual framework of the educational ecosystem, Reaching and Teaching Diverse Populations: Strategies for Moving Beyond Stereotypes engages preservice teachers in activities that promote their understanding of diversity topics. In working through the activities included in this text, students deepen their understanding of the interrelationship of the community, the school, and classroom dynamics and cultures. By making multicultural issues local and relevant, future teachers begin to see themselves as agents of change, creators of curriculum and pedagogy, and facilitators of a synergistic, dynamic, and exciting learning environment.

Features/New to this Edition:
Forty reflective activities teach basic methods of inquiry, linking back to relevant research and theory
Interactive strategies encourage students to collaborate, helping them to experience personal connections and the multidimensional nature of individuals, groups, and the classroom as a whole
A flexible text structure means that strategies can stand alone or can be completed sequentially as homework and/or in-class activities
Activities help users develop a professional portfolio that they can use in their student teaching and first classroom
