Weegy: List three societal issues students face outside of the classroom. Describe the role that you think schools should play in teaching students values and strategies to help them overcome these challenges. [ Three societal issues students face outside of the classroom are poverty, gender, and race. I think it is very important for schools to teach students values and strategies to overcome these challenges because schools are supposed to help students. Schools are supposed to empower students and give them all the things they need to succeed in life. Poverty is a societal issue that students face, and this issue can be very destructive to a students success. Schools should make it a priority to educate students about financial aid options and scholarships. Schools should also make sure that students are aware that they can surpass this social issue and overcome it. I think a lot of students may feel that they can not overcome this issue, but the school should be able to assist the student in realizing their potential to go beyond this social issue. Gender is another social issue students face. Schools should teach strategies and values to help overcome this issue. The gender stereotype should not be reinforced in schools; gender should not be emphasized in schools. There should also not be any accepted behavior in relation to gender because this will just create conflicts. Gender is an issue that students have to face, but gender should not be detrimental to a student's progress. Race is another societal issue that students are plagued with. Many people have stereotypical ideas about race and many of these ideas are not only false, but they are counterproductive to the livelihood of a student. Race is an issue that should be addressed by schools because schools should emphasize that stereotypes are not true, and negative assumptions that go with race are also wrong. ] (More)

700- to 1,050-word paper in which you outline the steps required for a multicultural education to be effective. Describe types of activities you would incorporate into your classroom that would support a multicultural education for all groups in this class. How could each group contribute to the learning of others?
Weegy: Pai and Adler (1997) noted that advocates for pluralism believe that multicultural education is appropriate for a democratic society because: "participatory democracy is fundamentally pluralistic . . . [ it entails the acceptance of the intrinsic worth of all human beings and their unique individuality" (p. 104). Yet opponents of multicultural education often characterize it as another manifestation of the demand for group rights, and that an emphasis on groups may foster separatist attitudes and behaviors. In response, Darling-Hammond (2002) asserted: "Far from encouraging separatism, acknowledgment of diverse experiences creates new associations that helps us ultimately to build the common ground in which a more inclusive and powerful learning community can rest" (p. 3). Yet critics of multicultural education say this approach fosters group conflicts by being anti-white and anti-male, and that multicultural education also encourages negative attitudes toward the United States (Gorski, 2006). Some advocates have responded by insisting that teaching about diverse groups and diverse perspectives in American society attempts to provide students with a more inclusive and more accurate portrayal of an American society that has always been diverse. The purpose of teaching multiple perspectives is to develop an understanding of diverse perspectives that can lead to an understanding of what motivates the behavior of others. It should also encourage students to examine their own beliefs and attitudes. Multicultural educators insist that when schools only provide the perspective of a dominant group, they are not promoting patriotism but are engaging in propaganda—"If mine is the only way of life I know, how can I judge that it is in fact a worthy and valuable way of life " (Reich, 2002, p. 133) ............... ] (More)
