Best-selling author Bonnie M. Davis provides strategies for teaching bi- and multiracial students and deepens readers′ understanding of race, ethnicity, and the development of racial identities.

"With great pleasure, I accompanied Bonnie Davis on her learning journey to better understand the plight and perspective of biracial and multiracial students. Once again, she has enriched my understanding of the powerful intersection of race and schooling. Educators of all races will benefit from the personal narratives, prompts for self-examination, and provocative research she has compiled."

What does it mean to be "in between"?

As more biracial and multiracial students enter the classroom, educators have begun to critically examine the concept of race. Through compelling student and teacher narratives, best-selling author Bonnie M. Davis gives voice to a frequently mislabeled and misunderstood segment of the population. Filled with research-based instructional strategies and reflective questions, the book supports readers in examining:



  • The meaning of race, difference, and ethnicity

  • How mixed-identity students develop racial identities

  • How to adjust instruction to demonstrate cultural proficiency

  • Complex questions to help deepen understanding of bi- and multiracial experiences, white privilege, and the history of race in the U.S.


This sensitively written yet practical guide fills a gap in the professional literature by examining the experiences of biracial/multiracial students in the context of today′s classrooms. The author calls upon readers to take a transformational journey toward racial literacy and, ultimately, become empowered by a real understanding of what it means to be biracial or multiracial and enable all students to experience increased self-confidence and believe in their ability to succeed.
