How Do Teacher Education Courses Discuss Structurally, Culturally, and Linguistically Diverse Families?
In this review of textbooks designed for university courses for early childhood educators, the researcher found three themes. The themes were family inclusivity, reflection, and classroom activities. These themes were found after a process of discovery and coding. While the nine textbooks included in this study all had pros and cons, this study also made evident that one textbook is not always appropriate for a specific college course. The findings from this study have implications for many stakeholders including university faculty, teacher education majors, administrators, teachers, families, and students.
