Summary
    Designed to serve as both a textbook and a course guide, Everyday Diversity: Developing Cultural Competency and Information Awareness helps students interrogate their own positionality so that they can better understand others and how they experience the world. The book also teaches students how to carefully consider information sources, particularly those pertaining to controversial issues including culture, diversity, multiculturalism, and social justice.

    The book begins with four core assessments that build upon each other: cultural autobiography, academic analysis, field notes and report, and final synthesis. The readings, questions, and activities that follow the core assessment chapter provide students with additional guidance and research that will help them complete the course assignments successfully. Specific topics addressed within the readings include best practices for taking ethnographic field notes, the importance of diversity in professional settings, how culture affects communication, and white privilege.

    Experiential in nature and aimed to help students develop both personally and professionally, Everyday Diversity is well suited for human diversity, critical literacy, introduction to research, education, health sciences, qualitative research, ethnography, anthropology, and sociology courses.
