Multi-Cultural Descriptor. Staff Development for Education That Is Multi-Cultural.
Walker, Bruce; And Others
This publication contains a procedure and three instruments for assessing and analyzing the extent to which an entire school district and educational program, department, school, or classroom within a school district or an institution of higher education is providing education that is multicultural. There are four steps to the process. Step number one involves distributing a copy of the definition of multicultural education to each person participating in the assessment. In this publication, multicultural education is defined as respect for and understanding of cultural diversity and individual differences. Step number two is data collection and analysis. Using one or a combination of three instruments provided in the publication, data are assessed and analyzed. The instruments utilize three different techniques: interviews, self-reporting, and observation. Specific instructions precede each instrument. The third step involves completing a profile sheet and writing a final report. The profile sheet provides an overall perspective. The final report provides a graphic representation of each category and includes written results, conclusions, and recommendations in narrative form. All of this information provides concrete data to assist in the institution's goal setting for education that is multicultural. The fourth step involves setting goals. (RM)
