Language Arts

Whether integrating multiculturalism into reading instruction or exploring the literary traditions of other countries, teachers need to consider multicultural teaching techniques for the language arts. Multicultural involvement may include reading and recommending books with multicultural interest, varying homework assignments with activities that are culturally diverse, or using multicultural classroom materials when teaching concepts. The following links provide ideas and examples of how language art curriculum can be modified or supplemented to be more multicultural.
