The students have wrong notions about the skin color in their minds, so its important to make them aware of racial differences at younger age. Children at younger age learn, explore, share, ask more questions and learn more effectively. There are certain activities by which children came to know about each other’s families. These activities include Me Pockets (each child take the plastic sleeve and is asked to fill it with photos, pictures, drawings or anything which reflects the culture of their families). The students quickly learn about eachother likes as well dislikes and compare with themselves. The students are involved in various acts and discuss with each other about their roles. Discussion of skin color can be expanded by incorporating into the maths lessons, map lessons, science and other curricular areas. When students are asked to write about their colors after these activities, positive response is seen towards awareness of race. Thus, learning together will help students to become more understanding and respectful of differences.
When a student makes any remark related to racism or sexist, teacher should speak honestly whatever she feels. Whatever remark is given by student about the particular group has great impact on other students as well and the response of teacher on that remark plays significant role. One should stand up for a person or group that has been insulted. Teacher should involve the students in various activities, relate them to subject matter which results in awareness of race. Learning together will help students to become more understanding and respectful of differences. Curriculum is everything that happens in school and students learn a lot from it. So curriculum should involve topics, debates, games, activities which laid emphasis on multiculturalism.
