Developing a Multicultural Education Curriculum
Presenter: Bill Howe, Past-President of the National Association for Multicultural Education

Date: Tuesday, November 27
Time: 11am- 6pm (w/lunch break)

Since 1995, over 20,000 people have attended the nationally recognized training program – Developing a Multicultural Curriculum (DMC). Developed originally in 1994 under a federal grant, DMC was created to meet the needs of teachers wishing to learn more effective strategies to teach minority students but also schools that wanted a curriculum that would prepare all students for a diverse workforce and a global economy. The institute follows a model based on four key steps  - awareness, knowledge, skills and action. These steps include awareness of how culture affects teaching and learning, the knowledge we need to be culturally responsive, how to create multicultural lesson plans; and how to develop an individual and organizational action plan.

Date: Tuesday, November 27
Time: 11am-2pm

This institute is designed to engage school leaders (teacher leaders and administrators), leaders in higher education as well as aspiring leaders interested in embedding social justice and culturally responsive approaches in their practice. We know from research and practice that culturally responsive approaches increase student engagement and achievement, community and parental involvement, reduce disciplinary issues and improves retention rates in higher education. The purpose of this institute is to share culturally responsive leadership strategies and approaches that work, explicate the challenges of this type leadership, and envision ways to overcome these challenges. This workshop will feature a select group of educational leaders who will share their experiences and coping methods as social justice leaders on their leadership journey.
