I would want to have done the same things once I have my own classroom and I feel fairly passionate for students to understand and develop tolerance towards people who may be different than themselves. I feel that as teachers, we can take action to really mold our students to grow and be better individuals living in this world.

Multiculturalism It is important to study multiculturalism in school. We are a multicultural country so it is important to study and understand the other cultures we live alongside. If you want to travel to other countries learning about their ways beforehand can help you to understand more about their culture and the way they live. Studying multiculturalism can help students to become more tolerant and develop an understanding of other people’s views on the world and their beliefs on how we should live and where we came from. Studying multiculturalism can be especially important for high school students who can find it difficult to accept people from other countries into our day to day lives.
In this essay I am going to explain why changes in the education system have and have not helped pupils. There are many reasons for and against this claim and I will outline them throughout this essay. A reason that changes in the education system have helped pupils is the national curriculum which was introduced in 1988 (1988 education act). The national curriculum standardised learning as everyone is taught the same thing as well as helping gender equality as males and females have access to all the same subjects.

Promoting Inclusion Equality And Diversity Within Learners Theory 3 As a tutor my aim is for the students to gain competence in and a full understanding of the subject. In order for students to do this it is important for the tutor to be mindful of the issues concerning equality, diversity and Inclusion.

The tutor needs to employ a number of strategies to promote inclusive learning to ensure that all the students are involved in the learning process.
Carrasquillo & Rodriguez, Chapter 1 New York State Education Department, Chapter 2 Regardless of language, cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds, students from bilingual, ESL and LEP programs are assigned to mainstreamed classrooms in the United States. A thoughtful and appropriate mainstream classroom can provide a unique, progressive and cooperative learning environment for ESL, ELL and bilingual students. However, if educators disregard the significance of comprehending learning needs of linguistically diverse students, the corresponding environment can be destructive and unfair. Teachers need to commit to helping empower these students to be confident not only in literacy development but in different content areas. In order
NAEYC Codes of Ethics Core Values *Appreciate childhood as a unique and valuable stage of the human life. Appreciating childhood could affect teaching in the classroom because you would know how to teach them better.

It also enables us to think creatively as it expands our capacity for viewing issues on multiple angles instead of one. My personal reason for choosing multiculturalism as my topic is my interest and curiosity of observing and interacting with people of all around the world. Coming from a small country in located in Central Europe, I find it fascinating to have a community full of students who trace their heritage to different parts of the world. Taking advantage of the campus’ diverse student body, I will investigate further how an ethnically diverse community affects not only our school’s system but the students inside it. It is important to know whether students fully derive
The definition of multiculturalism in the Webster’s Dictionary is: “of or relating to a social or educational theory that encourages interest in many cultures within a society rather than in only a mainstream culture” (Webster’s 2012). Reasons Multiculturalism should be integrated into America’s schools have been met with opposition.
