Un-standardizing Curriculum: Multicultural Teaching in the Standards-Based Classroom

 Un-standardizing Curriculum: Multicultural Teaching in the Standards-Based ClassroomSleeter, C. E. 2005. Un-standardizing Curriculum: Multicultural Teaching in the Standards-Based Classroom. New York: Teachers College Press.

How can teachers learn to teach rich, academically rigorous multicultural curricula under current standardization constraints? This book grew out of my work with teachers in a graduate course on multicultural curriculum design. This book, which has been an excellent-seller, offers a much-needed framework to help teachers take on this challenge. I offer a framework, illustrated with the work of classroom teachers as they grappled with creating and teaching strong multicultural curricula in multicultural contexts, while attending to “big ideas” and standards in the curriculum.

Description of book content

“This book has given me A LOT to think about. I think any teacher, curriculum leader, or policy make who cares about how we educate a diverse body of students at least needs to read this book. Sometimes we just don’t know what we don’t know.” Review by Roz Linder, In the Classroom.

Un-standardizing Curriculum is an indispensable book for educators who are interested in designing and developing multicultural curriculum and in promoting equity, diversity, and social justice in their classrooms.” Review by Ramin Farahmandpur in Teachers College Record.
