How to Celebrate Multiculturalism in Your Class...Even If All of Your Students Are White

My guest today is Roberto Germán, director of middle school and creator of the educational consulting group 'The Multicultural Classroom.'

In today's episode we explore:

  • the differences between multiculturalism vs. a multicultural classroom vs. social justice
  • Roberto's journey from an extremely poor and under-performing school in Lawrence, MA to one of the wealthiest private boarding schools in the nation and how that experience inspired the work he does now
  • what a multicultural classroom experience looks like for the white teacher with a variety of ethnicities and races in their classroom
  • what a multicultural classroom experiences looks like for the white teacher in a predominately white school
  • how to celebrate and honor the different cultures of your classroom without patronizing or stereotyping those cultures
  • resources for educators wanting do dive further into teaching in a multicultural classroom
