Multicultural Literature

. Most English teachers are expected to teach a curriculum to celebrate the white American experience. This lets students embrace the information without critical regard. This was the way I was taught many years ago. Let's be real. The world has changed and so does the curriculum that is ancient. In the 21st century we must embrace change and that means we must change the literature that is taught in the classroom. I am not saying throw out the classics but lets incorporate new literature and ideas. It is important to offer a multicultural literature, one that includes African American authors, Asian authors, and one that is not a prevalent genre. For people of different racial backgrounds, it is emotionally draining to attend schools where multiculturalism plays no significant role in the curriculum. If you want prejudice to end then we must embrace the literature and culture of all denominations to make a difference.
