NAME 27th Annual International Conference
National Association for Multicultural Education

Presenter: Bill Howe, Past-President of the National Association for Multicultural Education

About the Institute: Since 1995, almost 20,000 people have attended the nationally recognized training program – Developing a Multicultural Curriculum (DMC). Developed originally in 1994 under a federal grant, DMC was created to meet the needs of teachers wishing to learn more effective strategies to teach minority students but also schools that wanted a curriculum that would prepare all students for a diverse workforce and a global economy. The institute follows a model based on four key steps – awareness, knowledge, skills and action. These steps include awareness of how culture affects teaching and learning, the knowledge we need to be culturally responsive, how to create multicultural lesson plans; and how to develop an individual and organizational action plan.
