Filled with research-based instructional strategies and reflective questions, the book supports readers in examining:
- The meaning of race, difference, and ethnicity
- How mixed-identity students develop racial identities
- How to adjust instruction to demonstrate cultural proficiency
- Complex questions to help deepen understanding of bi- and multiracial experiences, white privilege, and the history of race in the U.S.
This sensitively written yet practical guide fills a gap in the professional literature by examining the experiences of biracial/multiracial students in the context of today's classrooms. The author calls upon readers to take a transformational journey toward racial literacy and, ultimately, become empowered by a real understanding of what it means to be biracial or multiracial and enable all students to experience increased self-confidence and believe in their ability to succeed.
