Multicultural Education: A Teaching Technique for Students of Little Diversity

Dr. Adonica Schultz Aune.


How do you teach a multicultural education class to students with little experience in cultural awareness and diversity? This is one instructor’s account of one higher educational multicultural class. Inter-video networking and online learning were used to facilitate unmet needs to students scattered in a sparsely populated U. S. state. The class incorporated guests from a variety of cultures, multicultural interviews, multicultural selected readings, assigned readings from experts of multicultural education in the 21st century with special emphasis on ways of student learning and special needs. This presentation should be of interest to multicultural educators worldwide. A syllabus and selected multicultural reading list will be provided. Video excerpts of the class will be shown.
