NAME 27th Annual International Conference
National Association for Multicultural Education

Presenter: Bill Howe, Past-President of the National Association for Multicultural Education

About the Institute: Since 1995, almost 20,000 people have attended the nationally recognized training program – Developing a Multicultural Curriculum (DMC). Developed originally in 1994 under a federal grant, DMC was created to meet the needs of teachers wishing to learn more effective strategies to teach minority students but also schools that wanted a curriculum that would prepare all students for a diverse workforce and a global economy. The institute follows a model based on four key steps – awareness, knowledge, skills and action. These steps include awareness of how culture affects teaching and learning, the knowledge we need to be culturally responsive, how to create multicultural lesson plans; and how to develop an individual and organizational action plan.

Private Tour to Greece – summer of 2018

I am organizing my 13th or 14th international tour. If you are interested in coming along, please email me at bill@billhowe.org. The dates are July 22nd to August 5th, 2018 with the trip starting in Athens and ending in Santorini. Teachers get CEU credit at no charge. Graduate credit available for a fee. A lesson plan is provided for you at the end of the tour so you can do a presentation for faculty or students. Since this is a private tour, you need to talk to me first so I can alert the travel company.
