Our names are Anne Hackbarth and Shannon Capra and we attend college at the
University of Wisconsin Eau Claire. We are in an Art Education class and
we are preparing to teach an informative class period on how to teach
multicultural art. We are looking for information on Why you should teach
multicultural art and How you should teach it.
We want to teach our peers about the appropriate ways of teaching about
different cultures. We would like to stay away from the superficial images
associated with certain cultures, such as teepees for Native American groups.
Or main concern is how to thoroughly teach about different cultures. We
know that background information is important and necessary, but where do
we go from there?
If anyone can offer any insight, please help us!
Thank you,
Anne Hackbarth
Shannon Capra
