Improving Curricular Diversity Improving Curricular Diversity Presentation Transcript

  • By Ian G. Morrris
  • Understanding Change  According to statistics, by 2020 students of color will make up nearly half (46%) of the nation’s school-age youth.  According to Newburgh school district our demographics are truly diversified—31% African American, 35% Latino American 2% Asian Amer, 32% white.  It is important that all members of our society develop multicultural literacy.  I propose to create a class related specifically to multicultural topics and themes.
  • Why?  Having a class geared specifically toward cultural issues will motivate other teachers and students to implement more diversity into the school-wide curriculum.  Creating a required course that highlights diversity will help our school shape a consensus that celebrates a multicultural atmosphere.
