Intended to assist educators as they deal with today's fears and apprehensions about diversity in the classroom, Using Multicultural Literature to Teach K-4 Social Studies lends educators the knowledge, resources and confidence to provide students with a more effective education in social studies. Cleverly designed into Three Parts: Section One asking "Why" teach multiculturally, and Sections Two and Three answering with helpful "How" to do so information. Additionally, Sections One and Two propose various questions educators may have as they approach their curriculum such as "Why should I blend social studies and multicultural literature?" and "How do I choose good multicultural literature to use with social studies?" Such titles offer teachers a simple and straightforward approach to quell their concerns regarding a multicultural education. Section Three provides educators with the tools to begin using their knowledge of multiculturalism and directly apply it in the classroom. For educators in the elementary level.
