Multicultural education seeks to give diverse students an equal change in school, life and contributing to build a healthy community. One of its important goals is to help all students to acquire the knowledge, attitude and skills to function in this new pluralistic and changing society. Some of the skills are know perfectly another language and other culture; this will make you different from other students when you’re looking for a job and many others aspects day to day. Students have difficulties learning when a class is given in another language or when
Because of their little interactions with other social, ethical, and economical groups, they deny themselves to the ability to learn from people of success. As a result, it becomes more difficult for these students to adapt to the world as much as students would if they come from a more privileged school systems. The increase in bilingual programs in schools would also allow the stigma of being a potential Latino immigrant to be alleviated. By assimilating into our culture, immigrant culture will become more accepted throughout America. However, it would be a disrespect to the student
Since cosmopolitanism reflects world citizenship for an individual and respect to local cultural diversity (Ibid), students need to become familiar with various elements that make this an enriching life such as exposure and reflection to various cultures via trips or activities (White, 2007). Wright and Lee (2014) concur, while adding that it should be a precondition for students to learn later how to interact with other students of different social groups as well. Therefore, an education leaning favorably to social reconstruction and child-centered could generate an outcome of developing community values and instilling rational criticism to social issues
This is significant to note because this perpetuates the notion that students of color need to be excluded from learning environment when their behavior becomes “too disruptive”. The practice sheds light on the function of behavior rather than focusing on consequences of breaking rules.the school is testing this strategy to improve students retention in school, test scores, and more importantly instilling the love of learning for diverse learners. It is harder for the school to implement it effectively
Multicultural Awareness Curriculum Issues Feelings about the Letter Ethnic and cultural differences in the educational field have brought controversy, from its denial until its rating as an educational resource (Chin, 2013). When talking about cultural differences in education is defined as a conceptual and value system that includes the beliefs and expectations, patterns, routines, behaviors and habits created and maintained by a group and that are used and modified by that group. Grouped and regulate relations between people, things and nature (Banks, 2006). It is necessary to survive as a group and facilitate communication knowledge in order to better collaborate as community and create a healthier environment surround our children. Multicultural
Another hopeful view shared in the article is when Banks reinforces the importance of multiculturalism in the classroom. He focuses on how “students come to school with many stereotypes…negative attitudes toward racial and ethnic groups” (Banks) and how multicultural textbooks and other school materials can educate students to reduce this irrational thinking. By getting students to “voluntarily participate” in activities with other
School dress codes are very harmful to a young adult and young child because they will not be able to express themselves, and will feel trapped being like everyone else and lose themselves. Students will also learn to respect others no matter what they wear,and will have a kinder and more accepting mind. Additionally, students will have a developed mind and be more independent with high academic intelligence. If we don't put a stop to dress codes than many students will be harmed mentally and emotionally,and never have a fully developed mind which will harm them. Self-expression is important to a student, because they know they aren't trapped in the crowd looking like everyone else, and have a raised self esteem knowing they are unique and different.
The decline of democratic principles in public education has excluded students from successful learning by creating a rigid establishment that provides an unequal advantage to the students that resonate with lessons based on the canon or have the ability to adapt his or her learning style to fit the teachers teaching style. Schools should adapt literature and teaching styles that resonate with various types of students based on social, educational, or economic backgrounds in order to better engage and teach them. To further improve education, dialogue in classrooms should be increased through debates on literature, current events, and politics. Administrative
Teacher educators and K-12 public school educational leaders recognize the need to provide specific culturally responsive teaching (CRT) training to pre-service and in-service teachers to better prepare these individuals to teach culturally diverse student populations. According to Brown (2012) and Gonzalez (2012), teacher preparation programs are training teachers in the use of CRT. For example, Gonzalez (2012) asserts that pre-service teachers need training in classroom-based assessments that address the learning needs of culturally diverse students. This study explored teachers’ lived experiences with teaching a culturally diverse student body and fills the gap in the literature on teachers’ lived experiences using CRTS with culturally diverse
Hence, taking into account of the benefit cultural appropriation can bring about, here are some suggested solutions that can effectively resolve the problem of cultural “misappropriation” and yet allow for countries to continue exchanging cultural elements. One way to achieve this would be through education. Like what most people say, education empowers. By instilling common knowledge of cross cultural sensitivity onto the general public from a young age, they will be able to comprehend the importance of thoroughly understanding another culture before borrowing ideas from them. Unfortunately, educating a person takes time and therefore this measure can only be effective in the long run.
