According to Vazquez Gómez , a multicultural society is accomplished by following these conditions; To identify the subject (both minority and majority); establish the ultimate aims of education(by reducing conflicts and promoting cultural, participatory and democratic development); determine the processes and resources through which those ends are achieved and finally to project these processes in a curriculum framework.

Frederick Douglass was an African-American social reformer, abolitionist, orator, writer, and statesman. Douglass was born into slavery in Maryland around 1818. He attempted to escape slavery twice before he eventually succeeded, with the help of Anna Murray, a woman he loved.

In this paper, I will be discussing the versatility of mitigation markers and what forms they come in and address appropriate times when using direct and indirect forms of speech. Communicators, besides using basic speech acts need to specify and be aware of their intended purpose with every interaction. Additionally, the communicator needs to know how to go about the conversation to achieve their desired objective. Should the discussion be conducted in a minimalist manner? Or does the word choice need to be a little softer to avoid face threading acts or any negative implications stemming from your word choice?

As stated by McBrien and Brandt in The Language of Learning: A guide to Education Terms, “A multicultural education helps students to understand and relate to cultural, ethnic, and other diversity. Multicultural education should be a process to work together and to celebrate differences, not to be separated by them” (Leistyna, 2002). Because a multicultural education exposes students to cross cultural beliefs and practices, it works to make sure each individual will have a better understanding to respect different cultures, which in turn reduces negative prejudices and stereotypes (Levy, Rosenthal & Herrera-Alcazar, 2010). By teaching diverse traditions and perspectives, questioning stereotypes, and recognizing the contributions of all groups

Educators have to confront their own, sometimes unmindful, racism, and then move toward integration that will lead to a better cure of racism or at least a prejudice reduction.

Grammar is one of the keys to effective students’ education world and yet they need to learn basic grammar.
The typical American classroom is becoming more diverse culturally, which warrants the need to be more educated about student differences. The educator has to be aware of students’ backgrounds, in order to help them grow as learners. Understanding different cultures ensures the ability to meet the students where they are to better educate them. Each learner is different, and it is helpful to know they best way to teach students from different races and cultures. By educating future teachers, exploring culturally diverse schools, and learning about racism and culture through museums, the teaching work force will be better equipped for educating all children, or Americans future.
