Teachers Aide/Language and other Barriers

posted by on .

8. In general, the best type of multicultural classroom materials are those that
A. demonstrate stereotypes of other biased behaviors.
B. can be used in a wide variety of ways.
C. are unusual or unique items from foreign countries.
D. are ordered from specialized multicultural learning catalogs.


I am not sure about this...I am leaning towards "B" but and also thinking "D".

    They are close. But I agree with B.

    Thank you. In reality I think that they both go hand in hand but I do know that there is only one correct answer.

    Actually, since materials ordered from catalogs are expensive -- and may not be very effective, I think I'd rule out D.

    It also makes sense to use multicultural items in several ways. The children become more familiar with materials that they see in many contexts.

    I also think using items in classrooms from other countries would be an awesome tool. However, I don't know how many people would be able to have such items. That is why I felt that the possibility of ordering from a catalog could pose as being rather beneficial.

    I agree that having actual items from other countries would be cool. But if they're valuable or hard to replace, you wouldn't want to use them in ordinary hands-on activities.

    I worked in a district with a very large (over 60%) limited-English student population, and one of the areas for which they tried to get textbooks from other countries was math. Even getting equivalent texts for Algebra I was impossible and terribly expensive. For one thing, Mexico's and Spain's texts for that level of math do not include the same study areas as those in California -- they're much more advanced! Shipping was also a huge cost. It's a nice idea, but prohibitive in major ways!
