I have used some of the hand-outs, conceptual and curriculum reform proposals (translated into Spanish) and some of the awarenness activities in teacher education with postgraduate students and in-service teachers in Spain. They provide very useful insight for reflection, debate and collaborative learning.

I have used the multicultural awareness quiz in my introductory sociology courses for years. I have students take the quiz, then give the answers, and then we have a discussion about the items that students were surprised about or have questions about. It's an effective way to get discussion going about social inequality in the U.S. today and a good change of pace from the usual sorts of classroom activities.

I looked through the website and clicked on the various links to find very
helpful information. It is pretty easy to follow and very well organized. The
content is very helpful. It is stated very clearly and helped me get a better
grasp on some multicultural education material.

I think the students will learn and become more aware of the different races and
cultures that the world has. It is very effective in helping me understand how
to get all the diverse students to interact with each other which will help out
any teacher also. I am just a prospective teacher. I now have a place where I
could look to in helping meet the needs of each student.
