Multicultural Recognition Program: Celebrating a World of Diversity and Understanding. A Mosaic of Multicultural Achievement.
Ameer, John Pierre, Ed.
This publication describes programs in education in Massachusetts that foster multiculturalism. Many of these programs are recipients of the Multicultural Recognition Award for their effectiveness in this field. The programs are described under the following 8 categories: (1) bilingual education (5 programs); (2) community participation programs (5 programs); (3) connections abroad (8 programs); (4) conflict resolution and anti-racist programs (7 programs); (5) cultural awareness programs (4 programs); (6) English as a Second Language (6 programs); (7) integration of new students (3 programs); and (8) multicultural education (8 programs). As all categories have relationships among each other, the descriptions are cross-referenced. In addition, because staff development is a critical part of advancing multiculturalism, programs that offer a strong staff development component are noted. In addition to each paragraph-long description is the name of a person whom readers may contact for more information or for recommendations. Programs that received the Multicultural Recognition Award are noted with an asterisk. Throughout the publication, excerpts from the writings of students participating in the programs are included.
