ABOUT THIS BOOK
ABOUT THIS BOOK
This timely volume addresses those who teach and study multicultural
        topics. Rather than offering a Band-Aid approach to curricular offerings,
        the contributors demonstrate inclusive, innovative ways to integrate multicultural
        issues and media into existing courses.
      In "Struggling for America's Soul: A Search for Some Common Ground
        in the Multicultural Debate," Lester Friedman leads off the volume
        with an analysis of the value and necessity of multicultural approaches
        for today's students and for society at large. The essays that follow
        provide a wealth of material for organizing courses, including week-by-week
        syllabi detailing specific writing assignments, bibliographical information
        on readings, and sources for films and videos. The contributors, who teach
        at institutions ranging from community colleges through major research
        universities, describe their experiences teaching students of various
        ages, backgrounds, and interests.
      Shared Differences will be of value to all who use media as a
        tool in their teaching, whether in history, literature, or the social
        sciences, as well as to those who teach film and video production.
