When looking at the traditional curriculum in the United States, one will find that it is taught primarily in English with an emphasis on American culture. Teaching exclusively about the American culture is becoming a perspective of the past. Recent trends focus on global or worldwide awareness, and this new perspective demands new curriculum in the form of multicultural education. J.S. Eaton describes multicultural curriculum as using cultural and ethnic diversity to accommodate and respect the varied cultural origins of our diverse population (Gaff, I 997). It encompasses more than one culture and enriches the learning experience.
