First hand stories by teachers for teachers on one of the most difficult topics to teach: diversityAccording to recent surveys, almost half of all students belong to a minority group, and that number is increasing yearly. Coping with the challenges associated with diversity and dealing with others in a sensitive and appropriate manner can be one of the more difficult aspects of teaching. Although much has changed in the landscape of diversity, there is still a long way to go both in and out of the classroom. Educating students on how to be culturally aware is invariably a challenge and a sensitive process in its own right. One Size Does Not Fit All addresses many of the challenges of diversity education by offering sage advice from teachers. With a wonderful mixture of voices and points of view, from big cities to small towns, these stories of how teachers have dealt with this very sensitive topic will provide a reassuring guide to fellow educators. Stories range from those about students with strong cultural identities, to stories of how teachers handle issues of sexual orientation, religion, and world conflicts.
