Fortifying the Foundation: Tools for Addressing Disability within the Multicultural Classroom
Bialka, Christa S.
Multicultural Perspectives, v19 n3 p172-177 2017
In a 2007 issue of "Multicultural Perspectives," Johnson and Nieto highlighted the need for more deliberate, robust, and balanced conversations regarding disability, especially within the context of multicultural education. Although researchers echo the importance of disability-based discussions and related curriculum, disability programming at the elementary and secondary levels is often sporadic or non-existent. This article melds Banks' (2004) five dimensions of multicultural education with disability-based constructs in order to provide a set of tools for fortifying teachers' knowledge base regarding disability and considering how disability can become a more integral part of the multicultural classroom.
