  2. Diverse and Multicultural Education? • Life is diverse, if students are taught real life then diversity should naturally be an intrinsic part of the classroom.

  3. Diversity and Multiculturalism Cont’d. • Diversity is differences, and no one is like anyone else; therefore, it is important to emphasize individuality. • Children see diversity and multiculturalism from an early age, in many places; they are used to it • home • the playground • television: Barney, Sesame Street, Dora the Explorer, and Caillou

  4. Having a multicultural class means the teacher and students should all wear different hats.

  7. Reducing the effects of Racism in the classroom: • any form of “teasing” will not be tolerated and will be met quickly with firm discipline • children will be expected to treat each other with respect • no derogatory language will be tolerated • As a teacher I will try to educate students about diversity and promote acceptance and celebrate individuality

  8. Differences within Students: How will I stay aware? • Respect each student. • Look at each student as an individual. • Don’t make generalizations about any student. • Take an interest in each student personally. • Celebrate individuality!
