Multiculturalism in School Libraries
MetadataShow full item record
Multicultural education is at the forefront of American education due to the influx of minority students in primary and secondary schools. Librarians can use a multicultural library collection to help students develop cultural sensitivity. The librarian and library collection can represent the culturally diverse society that is present in their school district. The research presented in this literature review provides information about teaching students to become culturally sensitive and tolerant to a variety of cultures, how to develop a multicultural library collection, and activities that librarians can do with students to promote cultural sensitivity.
