The dynamic duo of James A. Banks and Cherry A. McGee Banks join forces to provide college and university students with a helpful resource in their textbook entitled Multicultural Education: Issues and Perspectives, ISBN 9780470483282. Directed at future and present educators, this text presents direction on honing teaching strategies to become effective in diverse classrooms. The inclusion of articles from the leading experts in the field guides students to an understanding of the concepts, paradigms, and explanations necessary to meet the needs of culturally, racially and language diverse classrooms. Helpful features of this text include statistical tables, figures, and charts which portray the most current research and information in the educational realm. One member of this writing team is that of James A. Banks. He currently serves as Russell F. Stark University Professor and Director of the Center for Multicultural Education at the University of Washington, Seattle.

Banks is a seasoned writer, co-authoring a textbook entitled Teaching Strategies for the Social Studies: Decision-Making and Citizen Action as well as authoring the book Improving Multicultural Education: Lessons From the Intergroup Education Movement.
