Creating Books To Promote Diversity and Multiculturalism

Multicultuarlism1ASWIFTT RADIO Host Brenda Diann Johnson on May 22, 2021 at 1 pm CST, 2 pm EST and 11 am PST appeared on the show “Creating Books To Promote Diversity and Multiculturalism.”  Brenda along with her guest Ashley Charleston, who is the author of “Nyasia’s Bee-utiful Discovery” discussed the need for diverse books when teaching our kids in schools today.  Students of various backgrounds should receive a quality education while identifying with the content presented in the classroom.

He further states “Multicultural education is also a reform movement designed to bring about a transformation of the school so that students from both genders and from diverse cultural, language, and ethnic groups will have an equal chance to experience school success.” (Banks & Banks, 2013)

Content integration is where teachers start when gathering the material they want to teach. In this stage teachers must be careful to find material from all cultures to make up the material content for their lesson. They should also have visual examples from various cultures.
