A Multicultural Curriculum is a high school culture and dance curriculum based on the followingfour cultures: Mexican, Spanish, African, and African American. It was created so that high school students may have the opportunity to learn about other cultures in an exciting and interesting way. The lesson plans are designed so that the students are dynamically participating in every activity. The culture lessons cover a broad range of topics, including art, mathematics, poetry, politics, music, history, and literature. The dance lessons cover various dance styles that are prevalent in the culture, both mainstream and subculture. These lessons were designed for personal use; much of the information included is not directly stated. Myhope is that I may be able to implement the curriculum in the future, and that students will find joy in learning about other cultures. It is only through knowledge that we can shed light on ignorance and racism.
