Multicultural Instructional Materials: How To Choose?
Hamot, Gregory E.
This article provides six criteria to help teachers decide which multiculturally-focused instructional materials might most appropriately meet their needs. The criteria hinge on two assumptions: (1) the criteria stem from a definitional assumption; and (2) students bring different learning styles to school that reflect the diverse makeup of classes. The six general criteria useful for selection of materials include: (1) sound instructional content; (2) awareness of culturally different learning styles; (3) a democratic orientation; (4) development of mutual cultural understanding; (5) preparation for life in a global society; and (6) teaching methods. Contains 12 references. (EH)
