About this product
- Description* How can we recognize diversity? Do we value it? * How can we translate the rhetoric of equality issues into the reality of primary classroom practice? These challenging questions are addressed by this accessible book, which explores key aspects of the learning environment for both teachers and children. An outstanding feature is the holistic approach to equality issues with an emphasis on diversity in all its forms. When a child brings a personal possession into the classroom, which is deemed to be unacceptable, teachers are frequently heard to say 'put it in the cupboard 'til home time!' This book explores the possessions that children or teachers may want to hide away from the view of others. It will encourage teachers to value languages, cultures, beliefs, opinions and skills, and ackwledge that these contribute to the creation of an effective climate for learning. Written collaboratively by a teacher and an academic, the book will inspire teachers to raise searching questions that will lead them to become informed practitioners.
