Abstract

The research question addressed in this capstone was, in what ways would teachers benefit from in-service training of diversity awareness in a multicultural setting? A key influence for this capstone was Julie Landsman's book White teacher talks about race (2005) which gives a voice to multicultural students regarding their success in the classroom despite the obstacles they face. Because there has been a lack of teacher training concerning diversity coupled with an increase in the number of multicultural students in the classroom, additional instruction is needed for teachers to be more effective in a diverse setting. The in-service provides educators with research information on diversity awareness, lesson plan ideas for integrating diversity into the curriculum, along with helpful tips from educators in the field. The data revealed an increase in teacher awareness regarding diversity in the classroom.
