You are a kindergarten teacher in a suburban school that is in a community that is primarily middle income and Caucasian. You have implemented a multicultural curriculum in your kindergarten classroom. Several parents complain that such an approach is not necessary because the school system has so little cultural diversity. Using ideas from Chapter 1, write a letter to all the parents, justifying a multicultural curriculum for this kindergarten. Within this letter, include examples of how you plan to integrate a multicultural perspective into the classroom. Include examples of books, lessons and units, parent involvement, and other teaching strategies that represent multicultural perspectives.

Suggested Responses: Students should argue that all children will grow up in a diverse world and will need to understand and appreciate cultural variations in human interactions. Students may cite demographic data showing that "minorities" in the United States will soon comprise a new majority in the country. Other thoughtful arguments about the importance of cultural sensitivity and understanding should be accepted. In addition, students should be able to articulate specific teaching strategies and curriculum materials that represent cultural diversity. Examples include book titles, posters and other visuals for the classroom environment, social studies and language arts themes and units, parent involvement events, and other types of multicultural learning experiences.
