Abstract:Findings from this project offer the field new information about six biracial female adolescents' responses to biracial literature---how biracial female youth make their voices heard, express their beliefs, explore their world, and understand their position in the world through literacy. The findings also broaden previous notions of multicultural education, the role of multicultural and multiethnic literature in the lives of adolescents, and support the belief that teacher education programs should develop cultural critical consciousness about racial, cultural, and ethnic diversity for students in a diverse society.
