A multicultural classroom is a celebration of the ethnic and racial groups in your classroom, particularly those that have been historically under represented.

How do you do that in a meaningful way, whether you have a variety of cultures in your classroom or you teach in a predominately white school?

My guest today is Roberto Germán, director of middle school and creator of the educational consulting group ‘The Multicultural Classroom.’
