Standard 9: Cultural Sensitivity

April 21, 2011

The following documents show that I have met the requirements set forth in Standard 9: Cultural Sensitivity. The description of this standard explains that, in order to meet this standard, I must show that I can establish a culturally inclusive learning climate that facilitates academic engagement and success for all students.

This following PowerPoint presentation does just that. It was created for the course EDU 6525: Culturally Responsive Teaching. The project itself is a well-informed call to action designed to get educators to understand the importance of Multicultural Education. I used historical sources, such as Carter G. Woodson and Mary Mcleod Bethune, as well as the work of more modern scholars, such as James A. Banks, to encourage multicultural literacy, interaction, integration and awareness, while insuring that continued success of all students.

The next document is a response to Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr.’ s book The Disuniting of America: Reflections on a Multicultural Society. In this short essay I address Schlesinger’s interpretation of multiculturalism, which emphasizes the importance of both an American national identity and individual cultural identities within the realm of education.
