My Students

Multiculturalism in the classroom reflects "education and instruction designed for the cultures of several different races in an educational system," according to Keith Wilson of the EdChange website.

The principles of multicultural education teach students to appreciate, accept and honor different groups of people.

Teachers can use a multicultural approach to teach students in all subject areas, including social studies, language arts, music and art. Culture refers to the "traditions, rituals, beliefs, and values that are shared amongst a group of people." Each person is a part of at least one culture. Some families participate in several cultures. Multiculturalism refers to the "sharing of many cultures." The first goal of a multicultural program is to assist children with recognizing differences, as well as similarities, among all people. Allowing children to explore varying cultures creates opportunities for them to see that even when people have different customs and traditions, they often share some common traits, too.

My Project

Children learn that people can be different and unique, yet still have much in common. Such realizations help young children learn to accept differences and aid in eliminating prejudice and racism. These realizations assist children with accepting and respecting people from all cultures and backgrounds. My vision for my classroom project is for my students to have the resources available to them to do studies on different countries and cultures. My end goal would be to have an "Around the World" Event, where each part of our classroom reflects a different country, emphasizing our country reports, music from that culture/country, arts & crafts from the region and a sampling of food from the specified region. When students take the time to learn about diversity their self-esteem is boosted as they are recognized and accepted for their individuality. They feel good about themselves as other children recognize the worth of their traditions and customs.

Remember that providing the children with a multicultural program helps boost self-esteem and teaches them about acceptance and diversity.

A multicultural program will help children understand and work well with others as they grow and mature.
