ePortfolio Submission 4: Multicultural Education
Week Four’s focus is “Multicultural Education”
According to Nieto and Bode (2008), “Becoming a multicultural teacher
…means first becoming a multicultural person” (p. 392). Throughout this
course, we will discover ways to create multicultural learning
environments that are responsive to the needs of children and their
families. The first step is to examine our own beliefs about
multicultural education. For this assignment, you will:

the other source you choose.
- Create your own multicultural education philosophy statement after reading the article and at least one other scholarly source of your choice.
- Discuss two to three specific ways to incorporate your philosophy into a multicultural classroom.
- Discuss two to three obstacles you might encounter when creating a
multicultural learning environment and include ways to address these
