Diversity and the Modeling of Multicultural Principles of Education in a Teacher Education Program
Wasonga, Teresa A.; Piveral, Joyce A.
Multicultural Perspectives, v6 n3 p42-47 2004
In this study, we examined preservice teacher perception on the modeling of principles of multicultural education at a university of predominantly White students. Preservice teachers (N = 79) at the end of a multicultural education course responded to a survey based on the principles of multiculturalism. The students conducted an 8-week evaluation of the modeling or integration of multiculturalism in their teacher education classes. Statistical analysis indicated that 95.4% of preservice teachers perceived an integration of instructional principles of multicultural education, whereas 69% perceived integration of curricular principles of multicultural education. Findings suggested that diversity is a critical element of multiculturalism in the teacher education program needing attention. (Contains 1 table.)
