ACT 48 Continuing Professional Education Workshop

Multicultural education is not a task to be completed or even an end goal to be accomplished. Instead, it is an approach to education that aims to include all students, promote learning of other cultures, enhance fluency, and teach healthy social skills in a multicultural setting that is inclusive of all students.  Equity and accountability in multicultural classrooms can be promoted through multiple means of assessment and curriculum development.
