Competencies for Teaching Multiculturally.
Washington Office of the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Olympia.
A brief policy paper on multicultural education and a bulletin from the State Superintendent on its implementation in schools in Washington State are included in this report. The first paper lists 31 competencies that should be demonstrated by teachers who teach in multicultural settings. It also discusses the "change roles" that both teachers and learners must adopt in order to facilitate a multicultural approach in a diverse or desegregated setting. The second paper, the Superintendent's Bulletin No. 5-82, states the need for local districts to develop and implement non-discriminatory, multicultural programs, outlines policy initiatives toward that end, and reviews characteristics of multicultural programs. This paper also sets out general steps that school districts should follow, describes related technical assistance activities, and considers several definitions of multicultural education. (GC)
