Books Info:

100 Multicultural Proverbs free pdf Proverbs are an important part of the multicultural experience and they are consistently intertwined with socio-cultural and political webs of the people. Proverbs depict and unveil generational continuity, wisdom, power, and humility. To a large measure, they provide deeper meanings and explications of complex situations, events, and daily activities. They portray a true picture of the originality and valuing of oral tradition to the multicultural perspective. In more ways than one, proverbs expose dialogue and discourse as a part of the vernacular of people and they are the icing on the cake in daily oral interactions of diverse communities in the United States and around the world. In 100 Multicultural Proverbs: Underlying Educational Principles for Today's Educators and Leaders, proverbs from different African, Asian, Native American, and Latino tribes, communities, and countries are presented. These proverbs have implications for collaboration, consultation, and cooperation. Everyone has a role in building his or her community.The influx of immigrant minorities into the fabric of the United States society makes it imperative for educators and leaders to change their ways of thinking, teaching, learning, and leading. Clearly, the paradigms and powers have shifted in our society - we can and must learn from each other. To a large extent, this book exposes different ways to solve problems - some ways are through serious thinking and some are through humor.
