Description - Teaching, Diversity and Democracy by Barry Osborne
Based on his early experience of teaching in the Torres Strait Islands, and research into the literature of Native American, First Nations and other minority group contexts, Barry Osborne found that some teachers have succeeded with students across this range of diversity, and those successes were achieved by teachers doing similar things. This book is a celebration of those successes and provides some models of teaching for diversity and democracy to share with other teachers. Teaching, Diversity and Democracy is a multi-authored work by like-minded educational professionals, written to assist teachers working across cultures. It is intended to inform them about current pedagogy, curriculum content and assessment and to provide models for change for teachers working in multi-ethnic contexts with students from several di erent ethnic backgrounds. The work presents a comprehensive case for changing the way we teach minority groups within our current education systems, and provides a series of useful models to assist educators to work towards achieving both a culturally relevant pedagogy and a counter-hegemonic curriculum. It also looks at ways of re-conceptualizing the teaching of minorities to encourage participatory democracy.
