Module content

Visions of education for a multicultural society strive for equity of opportunity to learn, largely through the convergence of three practices: heterogeneous grouping, highly interactive instruction that appeals to a wide variety of learning styles, and inclusive curricula. A constructivist understanding of education, in which learners are active architects of meaning, permeates this collaborative vision of education. From a multicultural perspective, all students should receive an education that continuously affirms human diversity; one that embraces the history and culture of all racial groups and that teaches people to take charge of their own destinies.
