Steps required for a multicultural education to be effective.

According to J.A.Banks the steps required for a multicultural classroom to be effective is you must have multicultural education policy statement and supports diversity, the staff should have positive attitudes and expectations toward the diverse students, the school staff reflects ethnic and cultural diversity, the curriculum is transformation, the parents should participate, teacher strategies are constructivist and empowering, the teachers materials should present diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural perspectives on events, concepts, and issues, and the final step to have a multicultural classroom affective is that each program should be monitored on a daily basis.
A policy statement is to make the students have an equal opportunity to learn. The purpose of the policy statement is to allow multicultural education in the classroom, create programs that will create equal opportunities for everyone, and communicate to parents and the public on how much of a priority multicultural education is. In order for the students to develop a positive attitude the students must see the school staff (teachers, counselors, and principles) have positive attitudes. Students often look up to their peers. Teachers have to be skilled to learn and discover the hidden and underdeveloped abilities of the students. The curriculum should have a transformational and social approach. Students should be given opportunities to express their feelings with peers. Parents should get involved with their child/children by simply asking how the day went.

Describe types of activities you would incorporate into your classroom that would support a multicultural education for all groups in this class.

A teacher has to first make sure the students in the classroom are on the same learning level. If not all the students are not on the same learning level the teacher and students that are on the same learning level, can help the students that are not on the same level get to the level that is needed. Some types of activities a teacher can have in their classroom that would support a multicultural education is have each ethnic group share a holiday that their family celebrates and some snack that is from their culture. Each ethnic group would have a week to research the holiday they chose and bring in a snack. Another great activity to do in a multicultural classroom is “hello” in each culture the belong to if the know it. Another activity the classroom can do is called the story of my name. Each student can say where there name comes from and if their name means anything. This would help build respect and understanding for one another. A teacher should also encourage all the students to participate. At the end of each ethnic group the teacher can ask the students how we are the same and how are we different. The students can also as any questions they may have. Each ethnic group could also do a dance that their ethnic group represents. For example the Native American students can come in and do a Pow Wow. If they are not allowed to do a Pow Wow maybe the classroom can go on a field trip to a local reservation if there is one local. Once at the reservation the students can see first hand the Native American culture. Since learning to read is the primary goal in second grade the students can also incorporate stories and poems from their culture.

    You're getting there. Your last sentence doesn't make much sense. It's the teacher who decides what the students read in class. Therefore it's the teacher who chooses these stories and poems.

    You have about 150 words to go to reach the minimum of 700 words.
