Multiculturalism in the Classroom
Blue, Carl; Clark, Aaron; DeLuca, V. William; Kelly, Daniel
Technology and Engineering Teacher, v77 n7 p25-31 Apr 2018
The changing demographics of U.S. society have prompted a focus on multiculturalism in today's classrooms. Educators and students are expected to be aware of the individual differences and characteristics that exist and use these attributes to everyone's advantage. This awareness begins with developing a broad understanding of the diverse attitudes and behaviors associated with multicultural identities and facilitating dialog between individuals of different identities. Educators, by virtue of their positions in the classroom, can champion this cause through appropriate instructional approaches such as embedded lessons on multicultural topics, multicultural education class activities, and using resources and information that encourage healthy debates in the classroom. This learning object is designed to assist educators working with multicultural opportunities and challenges in the classroom.
