Issue/Question:
How can I find enough time to teach about diversity when I already have so much required material to cover in the school year?

Suggested Response:

Rather than teach "about" diversity, your goal should be to work it seamlessly into the curriculum by taking a multicultural approach to required subjects. Following are a few examples of how this can be accomplished:

  • Include reading selections that have main characters from diverse cultural backgrounds, and avoid books that rely on stereotypes.

  • Discuss names, foods, and customs that are mentioned in word math problems.

  • Encourage students to consider diverse perspectives of historical events about which they are learning.

  • Include information about people from diverse groups when studying scientific or technological advancements and accomplishments.
