Race and Culture in the Classroom: Teaching and Learning Through Multicultural Education

In Race and Culture in the Classroom (1999, Teachers College Press), high school teacher Mary Dilg closely observes what happens when one teacher attempts to work with issues of race and culture in a diverse classroom. Drawing on actual dynamics in an urban high school, Dilg, a white English teacher, describes and analyzes the significant challenges and joys at the heart of multicultural education with adolescents. Unafraid to address sensitive issues, Dilg shows how educators can treat questions of race and culture in the courses they teach. She offers a framework for thinking about the processes, the dilemmas, and the benefits of multicultural education while also pointing out that a multicultural approach to education is infinitely more complex than commonly acknowledged.
