Intersections: A professional development project in multicultural and global education


Research output: Book/ReportBooks


This publication presents a sampling of the writings of participants in the Intersections Project, a professional development program to bridge gap between multicultural and global education for urban schools that involved four participating entities, each with a local project that focused on Asia and Asian Americans.
