Multicultural Teaching and Learning
Pre-service and practicing teachers in my multicultural classes attentively try to uncover the contributing factors to the achievement gap as they also develop teaching practices that will create equitable educational experiences for students who have long been underserved.
Students take on a variety of tasks by working in groups where they try to define the everyday lived experiences of diverse children. Classroom activities and assignments include: creating multicultural toys; designing classroom decorations; writing children’s picture books that center on the perspective of ethnic minorities throughout history; and, analyzing textbooks and movies.
