As  future teacher I want to be able to incorporate multicultural literature into my curriculum and teach students about different cultures events and issues. At same time, try to help them understand how similar and unique each person is from one another. In addition, I believe one very simple way for ALL teachers to add multicultural ideas and content to his or her curriculum is by building a classroom library of multicultural literature. No matter what subject you teach you can build a library of books by and/or about different cultures.
