Affirming Diversity (5th Edition) Reviews

  • Athalia Stoneback

    I loved this book. It was amazing to realize how biased American schools can be, toward white students. The only thing I didn't like was it appeared Nieto assumed that whenever a female case study expressed a desire to have a traditionally female career, it was because she didn't know of any other possibilities. Maybe I'm the one assuming that this is the case, i.e maybe those girls didn't know of other options, but if not, I don't think Nieto should have projected what she thought onto these gi [...]

    I read this for a graduate class and thought that the perspective was very one-sided. I was not AT ALL surprised when I turned to the author profiles and saw where they live/work.

    Dr. Nieto has a powerful way of sharing her view of the world and helping to bring the heart back into teaching.

  • Henry Alvarado

    This is a great read for educators. How will you handle diversity?

    This is a very useful textbook- the research is all top-notch, her approach to the topic was incredibly well-informed, and the student stories she used to illustrate each chapter were moving and interesting. However, for such an engaging topic, this textbook is very dry. The separation between student stories and research make reading about the research a chore. Attention needs to be paid to how it is used in a classroom setting. If I could, I'd give 3.7 stars.

    Patty Bode, my professor from the SMFA MAT program, helped write this book and is a must read for anyone going into the teaching field. I also have to brag a little since one of my art lessons was used for a chapter heading illustration. There is a wealth of information regarding diversity in the classroom. It also paints a realistic portrait of what our schools lack and how many students of other cultures are drowning in the American school systems.

  • Carrie

    Pretty good. Lots of great lesson ideas and a great way to see my student's perspective. It can be a little over the top in terms of social justice at times, but still worth keeping for future reference.

  • Jonathan

    Fairly good analysis on diversity in education.

  • Matt

    Classic introductory piece to issues around multicultural education

  • Heather

    This text book cost way too much for what I got from it.It did however help me find primary sources that it referenced and for that I was appreciative.

  • Robin

    It's a textbookd it reads like a textbook. I sometimes felt like I needed a dictionary or an e-book version of this book would have been easier to read. It was ok.

    Just started this for my Equity and Diversity class. I thought I'd add it because it looks really good.
