Elgin Scalzi EDU 225 Web Review #2 Criteria for Choosing the Best Multicultural Books A: Avoid Stereotypes 1. When writing, avoid stereotypes that are deemed harmful to a group of people. 2. Show a diverse job range for groups of people. 3. Don’t lump the minority of a culture as the majority. 4. Different areas of the same culture could have different values. Don’t make them a single belief system. B: Stay True to the Culture 1. Do research before writing a book on a culture. 2. It helps when you are a part of the culture naturally. 3. Show different aspects of a culture and not just a small part of it. C. Use Proper Language from the Culture 1. If telling about a building from a place, call it by its name. i.e: Don’t use the term “church” when the correct term would be “Pagoda”. 2. Use culturally appropriate names. i.e: Don’t use names like “John” when referring to an Asian culture. 3. Don’t use words of other cultures that aren’t part of the culture you’re writing about.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
