“Teaching Unity clearly hits its mark.” Dr. Cynthia Rekdal, WSAME Exec Dir

“A seasoned educator, trainer and curriculum writer, Randie Gottlieb’s newest book is a testament to her years of working successfully with students, teachers and others. Her skills in negotiating the sometimes controversial terrain of multicultural/diversity education are reflected in how well she has laid the groundwork in presenting curricula with a focus on respect for differences.

The materials and activities she has chosen to use exemplify best practices not only in multicultural/diversity education, but in teaching in general.

This most welcome book includes clearly written, well organized, detailed lessons, activities, children’s performances and retreats – all tested with students — that can be used both in classrooms, homes and other places where students gather to learn. Also available for downloading are supplementary handouts and PowerPoint programs that enrich what the book already provides.

Gottlieb states, in the book’s introduction: “This book is about hope…to help prepare our children for life as citizens in a global society….” Teaching Unity clearly hits its mark on that account and more.”
