A goal is to help students affirm their cultural  differences , while realizing that their fellow students  have many  similarities . Working collaboratively with parents and  communities is becoming more critical in providing  equitable education to all students.

Multi-What? “As interdependence, communication, and commerce  have expanded, most societies have become  increasingly multicultural.” “Most individuals rely upon many cultures, not only  one, in living their lives.  Most individuals are  therefore multicultural.”  “People creatively constitute their identities, but not  in isolation.  They do so against a background of  interactive and continually changing cultural  resources.”   Amy Gutmann

Understanding  Culture   Culture is a blueprint that determines how we think,  feel, and behave in society. Culture provides accepted and patterned ways of  behavior necessary for people to live together. Culture imposes order and meaning on our  experiences. Culture allows us to predict how others will behave in  certain situations. Within each culture are  individuals , who are unique  expressions of many cultures and subcultures.
