This is my first time posting to this so I hope I am doing it properly. I am
a first grade teacher in a private school in Florida. I just finished
Session 3 of the Social Studies in Action class. The multicultural education
reading and piece is really making me think. I teach a very homogeneous
classroom- most of my students live in the exact same fairly wealthy
neighborhood and go to similar Churchs. It made me think that there is
still diversity within my classroom and it is my responsibility to celebrate
the differences with the children. The part that, for some reason, I am
struggling with the most is figuring out how best to tackle the second
dimension of multicultural education- knowledge construction. I donšt know
if there are any other early elementary teachers part of this group that
would want to delve further into this concept and how to best integrate
otheršs perspectives into little minds that are very egocentric. Thanks!
