Creating a multicultural classroom: Pre-K-4 grade Educators

The workshop helps  educators design fun and effective programs, changing regular stories to stories that reflect and values of the students’ culture(s). 

Schools today reflect the growing diversity of our country. Since culture is woven into the language, we cannot separate language from the culture. It is important to make sure each child's culture and language has a place in the classroom community.

 Using a web curriculum-planning format, the activities, culture and target language are interrelated through storytelling, drama, fine arts, music and dance.

Engaging students in verbal and non-verbal multi-sensory ways of self-expression and communication, the arts are used to enhance academics, build community, and provide a multicultural environment.
