About This Journal

Journal of Praxis in Multicultural Education

Purpose and Style

The Journal of Praxis in Multicultural Education is a peer-reviewed journal published once/twice a year by the Center for Multicultural Education at the University of Nevada Las Vegas. The journal is committed to publishing manuscripts written by Pre-K-16 teachers and higher education researchers that embody the true definition of praxis. The journal demonstrates teacher learning through a dialectical union of reflection and action. A panel of multicultural educators and researchers from Pre-K-16 and higher education will review manuscripts. Manuscripts should focus on research studies highlighting evidence based, best practices in Pre-K-16 classrooms that demonstrate improved academic achievement of diverse learners based on formal and nontraditional modes of culturally responsive pedagogy.
