BOOK EXCERPT:

Human Diversity in Education: An Integrative Approach is a research-based, comprehensive text designed to provide an introduction to multicultural education and diversity in society. The text prepares future teachers for the wide diversity of students that they are certain to meet in their classrooms, schools, and communities. It provides an updated and broad treatment of the various forms of human diversity found in today’s schools including nationality, ethnicity, race, religion, gender, class, language, sexual orientation, and ability levels. The text maintains a unique approach – a research-based cross-cultural psychological emphasis on how people learn about culture. The text is based on the assumption that it is at the level of the individual teacher where the change that must occur with regard to diversity in schools begins. It assumes that teachers must learn to incorporate issues of diversity in all of their teaching, including, but not limited to their interactions with children, parents, other teachers and the community. In the fourth edition new Case Studies are used to introduce major concepts at the start of chapters and Critical Incidents refer back to the Case Studies throughout the chapter. New coverage includes an emphasis on globalization and a new chapter on intercultural development. Important topics covered include: intercultural development of individuals, globalization and international education, religion in society and schools, gender and sexuality, exceptionality, and diversity with respect to early childhood.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This eighth edition of Human Diversity in Education: An Intercultural Approach continues to focus on the preparation of teachers and other human-service providers who not only can teach and interact more effectively with the wide diversity of students they are certain to encounter, but are also able to transmit this knowledge and skill to the individuals in their charge. The book continues to provide a broad treatment of the various forms of diversity common in today's schools, including nationality, ethnicity, race, religion, gender, social class, language acquisition and use, sexual orientation, health concerns, and disability. We also maintain its research-based approach, with an increased cross-cultural and intercultural emphasis. We continue to stress that it is both at the level of the individual teacher as well as the organizational structure of the school where significant change must occur with regard to how diversity is understood and accommodated.

BOOK EXCERPT:

' Human diversity, with its myriad of different conditions involving biology, psychology, and social structures, remains one of the biggest challenges — and opportunities — facing the species. With many government and private firms now having diversity or equality officers, programmes or committees, it is clear that human diversity is a cornerstone of policy-making at the very highest echelons. All this points to a need for proper scientific and medical information on this topic — not soft ''politically correct'' sociology. This book provides the hard facts on human similarities and differences, their causes and effects on people. It covers the whole range from normal to extreme human types, and presents — for the first time — much of the author''s 25 years of original research on the subject. It can also act as a family medical guide to aspects of human function, structure and disease. It covers many human topics in a humane and understandable fashion, providing much material for information and discussion. It can be used as a handbook or textbook on human diversity, but is mainly popular science for the general public. A special feature of this book is the 140 colour photos that illustrate the diversity of human life, nearly all taken by the author himself. Given the vast nature of the subject, the book seamlessly integrates relevant data from multiple disciplines including medicine, biology, anthropology, genetics, psychology, evolution, languages, sociology, history and geography. Even controversial subjects such as race, class and culture are tackled head-on with no-nonsense scientific rigour. Contents:Introduction: Scope of the Book, Types of Human Difference and Their CausesRaces and Inter-Mixing, Nationalities, Cultures, Castes, Classes and ReligionsHeight, Weight, Shape and ObesityDifferences Between Males and Females; Reproduction and Its Production of Genetic DiversityPersonal Choice, Cosmetic and Preventative Surgery, Clothing and Make-UpLanguages — A Rich but Frustrating DiversityNames and IdentityAlbinos, Colour Blindness and Height: How Human Characteristics are InheritedThe Brain, Intelligence, Mind, Personality, Mental Problems, Learning, Memory, Creativity, HappinessSex, Attraction, Reproduction, Twins, IncestDiseases, Disorders, Immunity, CancerEating, Drinking, Diet, Digestion, Liver, Cystic Fibrosis, Diabetes, Allergies, Food Intolerances, AnorexiaSkin, Skin Colour and DisordersThe Skeleton, Muscles, Osteoporosis, ME, Motor Neurone Disease, Muscular DystrophyHead, Face, Eyes, Ears, Sight, Hearing, Smell, TasteThe Heart; Heart Attacks, Strokes, High Blood PressureBlood, Blood Groups; Anaemia, Haemophilia, Leukaemia and Other Blood DisordersArms, Legs, Giants, Dwarfs, Arthritis, Left-HandednessKidneys, Urine, Bladder, Cystitis, Police Alcohol TestsLungs, Breathing, AsthmaDevelopment From the Fertilised Egg; Sexual and Later DevelopmentLongevity, Ageing, Birth and Death Rates, Immigration, Population StructureAbnormalities of Sex Chromosomes and Autosomes, Down Syndrome, Barr BodiesOpinions on the Characteristics of the Chinese, Japanese and English Readership: Students of medicine, biology, psychology and sociology, professionals working as diversity officers or in equalities, general readership. Key Features:This book is the only one on human diversity and its effects on peopleThe book contains several personal accounts, specifically written for it, by people who are different in some way. They give details of their difference and how it has affected them and those around them, e.g., having cystic fibrosis, suffering from suicidal depression, having a heart attack requiring a quadruple by-pass, having type 1 diabetes while being pregnant, or being ''severely dyslexic''Controversial subjects such as race, class and culture are tackled head-on with no-nonsense scientific rigourThe author is a very experienced and highly qualified scientist with medical interests who has researched this topic for 25 years. Many of his original findings on human diversity are published in this book for the first time. As a geneticist, he is able to write authoritatively on which human differences are genetic, which are environmental, and how genetics and environment interact for many characteristicsKeywords:Human;Diversity;Genetics;Environment;Health;Disease;Languages;Choice;Race;Culture “Really enjoyed reading your chapter which brings alive the brain!

BOOK EXCERPT:

Just as we celebrate diversity in nature and cultures, so too do we need to honor the diversity of brains among our students who learn, think, and behave differently. In this book the author argues that we should embrace the strengths of such neurodiverse students to help them and their neurotypical peers thrive in school and beyond.
