Multicultural Education

NLESD has a resource rich website to support multicultural education.....

Multicultural education helps all students see themselves in the curriculum and the classroom and fosters a global perspective and broad worldview for all students.  It includes strategies, practices, and pedagogical approaches that affirm students' identities and connectedness. Multicultural education introduces students to various cultural backgrounds, beliefs, and values. Its goal is to foster educational equity in the classroom and school by promoting success for students with culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) backgrounds.

This website offers information on welcoming newcomers, cultural responsiveness, equity, and global citizenship as well as links to professional learning seminars and informational resources. Content will be added on a continual basis to reflect questions and challenges brought forward by educators. This website will serve as a valuable resource as you welcome newcomers into your classrooms and schools.
