The Drama of Dominance and Diversity: A Multicultural Curriculum Framework for Secondary Social Studies/Language Arts Core.
Santora, Ellen Durrigan
This paper proposes a multicultural education framework for curriculum development for social studies/language arts core classes taught in a multicultural setting. The themes proposed in the framework are meant to be embedded in an integrated, holistically organized program. The purpose of the paper is to provide a curriculum framework model suitable for presentation at a social studies and/or language arts conference. This is not a closed model but intended to be dynamic in order to open discussion about a multicultural education curriculum. The multicultural themes suggested as applied to integrated social studies/language arts programs include: (1) "Understanding Self and Others: Culture, Ethnicity, and Personal and Group Identity"; (2) "Critical Participation in a Pluralistic Democracy"; and (3) "Multicultural, Transformative Content Knowledge."
