Description : Adapted from the bestselling Race, Ethnicity, Gender, and Class by Joseph F. Healey and Andi Stepnick, Diversity and Society provides a brief overview of inter-group relations in the U.S. In ten succinct chapters, Healey and Stepnick explain concepts and theories about dominant-minority relations; examine historical and contemporary immigration to the U.S.; and narrate the experiences of the largest racial and ethnic minorities. The Sixth Edition of this bestseller explores a variety of experiences within groups, paying particular attention to the intersection of gender with race and ethnicity. While the focus is on minority groups in the U.S., the text also includes comparative, cross-national coverage of group relations in other societies. Updated with the most current trends and patterns in inter-group relations, this text presents empirical data in an accessible format to show you how minorities are inseparable from the larger American experience.

Description : The purpose of this work is to broaden the scholarly dialogue in educational leadership and to address the changing role of the American school principal in the twenty-first century with regard to increasing diversity in the United States. This book seeks to provide theoretical and practical insight into the role of school principals dealing with an ever-increasing multicultural student population. We cover an array of issues that we believe are critical in order for the twenty-first century school principal to be effective and relevant. A primary inquiry that needs to be made is: Are school leaders taking seriously the increasing social and cultural diversity in their schools? It is the school principal who sets the tone for the school culture and who provides the vision as to the direction of the organization. We endeavor to help scholars and practitioners have a better understanding of the importance of the diversity of their students, and to give them the tools to appropriately lead schools in ways that ensure all students, regardless of their life circumstances and status, are provided a school climate that promotes high academic achievement and a sense of belonging.

Description : This is a comprehensive and up-to-date critical examination of cultural diversity in Germanic-speaking societies. It goes beyond ethnic, religious, and gender stereotypes to show minority groups as active participants in German history rather than as passive victims. This collection of critical and theoretical essays seeks to interpret the current philosophical, aesthetic, and literary thinking about diversity in literature and language. The book is divided into four parts: literary analyses of works produced by members of minority populations, linguistic discussions and case studies of minority groups, structures and strategies of discourse and prejudice, and studies of remedies for problems of racism and discrimination. Some of the most significant writers and thinkers in the field have contributed, making this volume of critical concern to scholars and students of German, modern languages, and comparative studies.

Description : Cosmopolitanism, which involves openness to diversity and difference in the world, is more widely embedded in educational discourses about the contemporary state in today's society. In a sense it is a reorganisation of everyday social life as a result of the greater transnational mobility of people, which in turn has created a greater diversity in our society. It essentially revolves around care for other cultures, concern for the integrity of cultures in a diverse society and particularly in education it calls for self-reflection with respect to both our own cultural context and other cultural values. This book illustrates how education works without borders in a cosmopolitan society.

Description : “Will American’s growing diversity undermine democracy, or is it instead a cornerstone of democracy? The Great Diversity Debate is essential reading for anyone who has thought about this question. Koppelman gives us a fascinating, detailed, and evenhanded account of the long historical roots of contemporary controversies surrounding flashpoint issues like affirmative action, multicultural education, and globalization. This well-researched and optimistic book will make you think about, and maybe even re-think, such issues.” —Christine Sleeter, Professor Emerita, California State University Monterey Bay and President, National Association for Multicultural Education Based on research from multiple disciplines, The Great Diversity Debate describes the presence and growth of diversity in the United States from its earliest years to the present. The author describes the evolution of the concept of pluralism from a philosophical term to a concept used in many disciplines and with global significance. Rather than assuming that diversity is a benefit, Koppelman investigates the ways in which diversity is actually experienced and debated across critical sectors of social experience, including immigration, affirmative action, education, and national identity, among others. Koppelman takes the sometimes complicated arguments for and against diversity in school and in society and lays out the benefits with great clarity and simplicity making this book accessible to a large audience. Book Features: A broad view of diversity in the United States based on research from philosophy, psychology, sociology, political science, economics, and more. Cogent arguments from both advocates and critics concerning whether pluralism represents an appropriate response to diversity in a democratic society. An overview of multicultural education, including its origins and its current emphasis on strategies such as culturally responsive teaching. Contents: The Diversity Debate The Growth of Diversity and Pluralism: The Impact of Immigration Pluralism and Democracy: Complementary or Contradictory? Diversity and Discrimination: The Argument over Affirmative Action The Struggle for Identity: What Does It Mean to Be an American? Multicultural Education in K–12 Schools: Preparing Children and Youth to Function Effectively in a Diverse, Democratic Society Globalization, Diversity, and Pluralism: Finding the Common Ground Kent Koppelman is professor emeritus of teacher education at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.

Description : Be inspired by MusicGenerations. This on-going programme connects young people between 14 and 25 years, and people over 50 through music, including rap, hip hop, poetry and spoken word. The programme carefully combines talent development, reciprocity between ages and cultures, and urgent social issues. Learn about the power of music. Based on a range of art programmes, particularly those of MusicGenerations, Part I of this volume illustrates how these programmes positively contribute to social and politicaI issues around age and intergenerationality, diversity, and freedom. The contributions unravel the programmes' effective elements that can be more widely adapted to cultural and other interventions aimed at bridging among people from a wide range of backgrounds. The power of music (art) for individuals, groups, and society is assessed by borrowing from neurobiology, psychology, and sociology. Envision an inclusive society. Part 11 addresses the question of how the reality, presented by MusicGenerations, functions as an example for a future, inclusive society. The progressively inclusive experiences of 15 years of MusicGenerations are juxtaposed with the increasingly exclusionary discourses on "cultural diversity" in cultural and integration polices and public debates in the Netherlands. The contributions offer ways to enhance both our vocabulary and understanding of diversity in society. Post-multicultural Dutch citizenship is probed with concepts such as mixing, intersectionality, and the integration context and with relational, non-emotional bonds as the basis for social cohesion and citizenship. This multidisciplinary volume is of interest to anyone in the cultural and social sector who studies, works, or makes policies - or contemplates doing so - at the crossroads between generations and diversity. The effective elements in the artistic approach are an inspiration to professionals and students alike. The volume provides unique insight into the Netherlands as a site for inclusion. But its conceptual expansion of integration, inclusion and citizenship extends beyond Dutch borders. This concerns us all.

Description : Diversity is the reality of America today. Whether you let diversity be a drain on your organization or a dynamic contributor to your mission, vision, and strategy is both a choice and a challenge. Building on the Promise of Diversity gives you the insights and skills you need to navigate through simmering tensions -- and find creative solutions for achieving cohesiveness, connectedness, and common goals. Building on the Promise of Diversity is R. Roosevelt Thomas’s impassioned wake-up call to bring diversity management to a wholly new level -- beyond finger-pointing and well-meaning “initiatives” and toward the shared goal of building robust organizations and thriving communities. This original, thoughtful, yet action-oriented book will help leaders in any setting -- business, religious, educational, governmental, community groups, and more -- break out of the status quo and reinvigorate the can-do spirit of making things better. The book includes a deeply felt analysis of the sometimes tangled intersections between diversity management and the Civil Rights Movement and affirmative action agendas . . . a personal narrative that charts Thomas’s own evolution in diversity thinking . . . and a roadmap for mastering the powerful craft of Strategic Diversity ManagementTM, a structured process that helps you: * Realize why multiple activities and good intentions are not enough for achieving sustainable progress. * Recast the meaning of diversity as more than just race and gender, but as any set of differences, similarities, and tensions -- such as workplace functions, product lines, acquisitions and mergers, customers and markets, blended families, community diversity, and more.* Accept that a realistic goal is not to eliminate diversity tension but to use it as a catalyst to address key issues. * Recognize diversity mixtures, analyze them accurately, and make quality decisions in the midst of differences, similarities, and tensions.* Build an essential set of diversity skills and develop your “diversity maturity” -- the wisdom, judgment, and experience to use those skills effectively.* Reflect on the ways you might be “diversity challenged” yourself.

Readers will gain a foundational understanding of the social diversity that contextualizes varying experiences and behavior of juvenile delinquency, as well as a deeper appreciation for the policies, social justice, and community programs that make up the juvenile system.

Description : Student diversity is a major topic in education today. Diversity will not be going away any time soon. Even over thirty years ago, educators were beginning to discuss the subject of diversity and multiculturalism. In fact, during the 1970s and 1980s, the word, "diversity" was seldom used at all. The term "multiculturalism" was at the forefront of the scene. Although the world was diverse during those earlier decades, many educators did not seem to recognize the importance of "multiculturalism" and "diversity." In those decades and later with the enactment of No Child Left Behind, classrooms have become much more diverse. Due to diversity, teachers have had to change their methods of teaching considerably to meet the needs of all learners. During the last decade of an increasing population of Hispanics and other immigrants from various parts of the world moving to the United States, teachers are now realizing how diverse their classrooms are now becoming. Old lesson plans that once worked well for students' learning are now discarded, with new lesson plans accommodating the needs of the diverse student population. In the 50s and 60s, the population was not as diverse. Teaching was most likely less challenging then it is today. This article covers several areas of diversity, including race, ethnicity, culture, children's strengths and weakness, individual student's preferences, and likes and dislikes, poverty settings in today's classroom, and the need for accessing prior knowledge before teaching lessons. Diversity today should not be seen as a problem to be dealt with; it should be a welcomed challenge. Only through challenges do teachers become better teachers.

Description : Our Diverse Society is a follow-up to The Diverse Society: Implications for Social Policy (NASW Press, 1976) which presented the case for inclusion of ethnicity in the analysis of social problems and policy. Our Diverse Society builds upon that case and centers on the implications of diversity on social institutions and the role of social policy in enhancing or restricting diversity. This book was conceived as a culmination of scholarly work presented at the symposium, “Race and Ethnicity in American Life: Diversity and Society,” sponsored by the School of Social Service Administration at the University of Chicago in April 2005.
