Multicultural Inclusiveness within the classroom
The classrooms of America are no longer becoming multicultural environments. They already are. Many public educational studies indicate that students of color make up over 40% of America’s public school population. Studies also indicate that over 85% of their teachers are White (Albert & Yasin 1999). What affects does this have on the educational process of students from low-income families and students from diverse backgrounds? Studies also show a disproportionate percentage of students from diverse backgrounds not graduating from high school and attending college. AD/CT believes there is a connection. Therefore, our goal is to give educators a working knowledge of how to include students from diverse backgrounds into the classroom environment. We have the tools to effectively evaluate the intercultural communication climate within a classroom environment.

Intercultural and Diversity Sensitivity in a School Setting
“Every conversation with someone of a different skin color or culture expands our reality. Educators must be able to converse with students from all walks of society. Multiculturalism helps to educate ALL students. Money may make the world go round, but understanding different cultures makes the world a better place for everyone.

Motivational: Students From Diverse Backgrounds
In order to motivate students we must be able to reach students. In regards to teaching students from diverse backgrounds AD/CT believes in the adage, “you have to reach’em to teach’em”. We will address how to show students from diverse backgrounds that caring is part of the educational process.
