For this project, you will be creating a PowerPoint presentation that addresses creative ways to integrate multicultural education into the curriculum, reduce cultural stereotyping, and enhance multicultural understanding.
Before you start your project, read this web resource article, â€œTeaching With A Multicultural Perspective.â€ You can find this article when you click on the link below. In terms of ethics, how can early childhood educators influence the development of positive attitudes toward all races, cultures and ethnic groups? You will be scored on a GEL for this project. The GEL is â€œidentify ethical issues within the field of Early Childhood development.â€ After your title slide, this needs to be your first slide. On this slide you will explain why ethically it is important for all educators to address multiculturalism and diversity in the classroom. Once you have explained this you will be ready to begin.
On your next five slides you will be providing suggestions for parents/teachers on activities they could use to promote an understanding of other cultures in addition to their own. Be sure to identify the age range for which the activities would be appropriate. All of your activities need to be for the same age group, and this age group needs to be identified on your title slide. In addition to our article under the web resource link in this unitâ€™s reading and the information in the text, you may find the web resource article â€œPreschool Multicultural Activitiesâ€ helpful. Please remember that like any of your other submissions everything on your power point slides needs to be in your own words. If you use any idea or activity that you read about in our unit 5 readings or another reliable source, you must provide an in-text citation on your slide. You will include your full reference in APA format on your reference slide.
Your power point is the type of presentation that could be presented to students considering the profession, parents, or to a conference of childcare professionals.
PowerPoint: The presentation should be a minimum of six slides in length, not including the title and reference slide. Your power point needs to be balanced between the copy you write and the graphics you use. While you will not be graded on the graphics and pictures you use to enhance your slides, there must be something on the slides besides words. If you only included words on your slide, then you might as well put the information in a MS Word document. Google Images is wonderful and easy to use, and photos and pictures are easy to add to your power point presentation. If you need help doing a power point, visit the Kaplan Writing Center in the evening when there are live tutors available to work with you. Please make sure that you understand what you need to do before you begin.
