Multicultural Education Module.
Campbell-Whatley, Gloria D.
The purpose of this multicultural education module is to provide faculty, teachers, and administrators with a resource that will aid them in creating an environment that is amenable to diverse social and cultural groups within U.S. school systems. The guide identifies current resources for addressing issues with respect to cultural diversity and multicultural education, discusses the ideology and theory of multicultural education, and presents demographic data on culturally diverse groups (African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, Native Americans, and Anglo-Americans). Further, it identifies speakers who are qualified to cover the subject, presents experiential activities that address the topic, and offers guidelines for users in their preparation, delivery, and evaluation on multicultural teaching and advising. Specifically, the materials include: a listing of videos and selected films that address race, culture, gender, and ethnicity; a range of tested activities and experiential exercises proven useful in a university setting for exploring and developing sensitivity to diversity; and activities and materials that would assist in needed curriculum and instructional changes that would be applicable to the public school setting.
