The Matrix Reader

Ferber, Jiménez, O'Reilly Herrera, & Samuels, Editors
(McGraw-Hill, 2009)








The Matrix Reader promotes a commitment to an interdisciplinary approach to teaching race, class, gender, and sexuality. This approach introduces readers to core social identities and demonstrates how those identities are intersecting, multidimensional, and complex. Unlike most books of its kind, The Matrix Reader highlights the duality of privilege and oppression and the effects that race, class, gender, and sexuality have on our lives.

The Culturally Inclusive Educator: Preparing for a Multicultural World

Dena R. Samuels, PhD
(Columbia University's Teachers College Press, 2014)

The Culturally Inclusive Educator asks educators to consider what they can do differently to create a welcoming, inclusive, and exciting environment for the 21st century. Based on the author’s national research and consulting work, this book examines the discrepancy between the current educational cultural climate and the need for educators and their institutions to prepare for a growing multicultural population. It asks what constitutes effective preparation, and provides guidance on overcoming personal and institutional challenges to cultural inclusiveness (stereotype threat, microaggressions, colorblindness/identity-blindness, implicit bias, among others).​ Samuels begins with the challenges facing the higher education community and then offers 8 transformative steps to help build cultural inclusiveness that any educator teaching any subject can utilize to increase their effectiveness. Culturally inclusive leadership is highlighted as the model for educators and institutions to embrace to become successful in today’s world.
Transform old-school mandatory “Diversity Training” into much sought-after Workshops on Cultural Inclusiveness.

Join the many institutions and organizations that are using The Culturally Inclusive Educator: Preparing for a Multicultural World as an all-campus or all-organization read! Samuels is available to come to you to facilitate a book club discussion that can specifically answer the questions that your book club has.

Rather than dragging organization members to yet another "diversity training," they will get their specific questions answered to be able to get the most out of the strategies and practices offered in the book! Your organization members will be requesting to come to this workshop!
