Diversity and multicultural education l.jpg

Diversity and Multicultural Education

  • Diversity is not necessarily multicultural.

  • Multicultural education involves diversity.

  • Includes: race, ethnicity, religion, points of reference, learning ability, and interests.

  • Multicultural education adds spice to the classroom.

  • The ideal?: Diversity is so common, that it is no longer an issue.

Bilingual Education

  • Bilingual Education should include: ESOL instruction, sheltered subject matter teaching, and instruction in their first language.

  • Mainstream the student when English is more proficient.

  • How can knowledge be acquired if there is no literacy?

Reduction of Racism

Diversity and Multicultural Education can lead to a Reduction in Racism:

  • Show common life events.

  • Common factors: money, housing, food, and customs.

  • Show respect and understanding in our differences.


Teacher awareness l.jpg

Teacher Awareness

A Requirement for a Diverse and Multicultural Education is Improved Teacher Awareness.

  • The teacher needs to be aware of his/her own biases.

  • Become educated on your students’ backgrounds.

  • Know the heritage views on learning, respect, and competition.

  • Know the mind set on the value of education.

  • Help the students feel valued, appreciated, and understood.

Conclusion

The old adage, “It takes a village to raise a child.” is true when it comes to education, and the well being of a child. It takes the entire school to help with the successful continuing education of children, no matter the diversity. We as educators need to be aware of diversity in our students, the community, and ourselves. This uniqueness is a wonderful opportunity for improving the learning process.
