Item Description...

""Roots and Wings" will open doors to beginners in cultural diversity education, and will enrich the more experienced readers. It is a grand tool for assisting early childhood educators to address the many-faceted and complex issues of cultural diversity and racial prejudice. . . . I recommend this book to any teacher, caregiver, or parent who wants to begin learning what it means to foster young children's respect for themselves and others."--Louise Derman-Sparks, author, "AntiBias Curriculum"More than a decade ago, "Roots and Wings" was published as the first practical resource for early childhood teachers on the then new topic of multicultural education. This invaluable guide is now completely updated to respond to present day anti-bias issues in educating young children.

"Roots and Wings" provides a thorough, clear, and practical introduction to working with diverse children and families in early childhood settings. With more than 100 new and revised activities, practical examples, and staff training recommendations, the revised edition includes new chapters on bilingual education, culturally responsive teaching, and children and prejudice. Seamlessly blending theory and practice, Roots and Wings is an ideal resource for preschool teachers, early childhood programs at colleges and universities, and training workshops.

Stacey York is an instructor in the Child Development Department at Minneapolis Community and Technical College, Minneapolis, Minnesota. She conducts multicultural workshops around the country and is also the author of "Big As Life: The Everyday Inclusive Curriculum."

My Feelings  Feb 21, 2008
This is a good book. It covers lots of ideas. I really enjoy reading it.
Excellent choice for pre-school and kinder teachers  Dec 6, 2007
As a Kindergarten teacher it is often hard for me to find cross cultural lessons that are developmentally appropriate for my students. This book provides many chapters on the rationale for introducing culturally relevant curriculum into your classroom. More importantly, it gives numerous activities and instructions on how to do so. I wish I would have read it sooner.
Roots and Wings by Stacy York  Feb 25, 2006
Roots and wings is a fantastic book. I really recomened to everybody to read it. It is a very good view to learn more respect for different culteres, races, religions, and so forth.
An Excellent choice!  May 29, 2000
This book is a must have for current and future teachers. The author does a good job of presenting detailed information on Multicultural education. If you are not sure what Multicultural education is or how to include it in the classroom, this book will help you through. It includes over 60 pages of activities you can do with children that support culture,as well as suggestions on how to change the classroom environment to be multiculturally supportive. The book also gives background information on how children develop and how predjudice is formed. In a society that is so diverse, children need to learn to accept and value differences. Teachers have the very important job of teaching children tolerance and can get a good start after reading this wonderful book.
