Major Assessment 1: Develop a Platform of Beliefs
The following major assessment involves integrating your knowledge and skills around defining multicultural education and being a multicultural educator. You will write a platform of beliefs about teaching and learning. Your platform should be grounded in your growing understanding of teaching and learning, as well as the knowledge base about teaching and learning. You will also describe personal strengths and challenges as an educator in building an educational environment that reflects your beliefs. In assessing your own strengths and challenge areas, include an analysis of the findings from the assessment instruments and exercises that are included in the previous chapter. You may also access additional assessment instruments. Include in your platform the following sections: 1. Introduction 2. Your platform of beliefs about teaching and learning.

How do people learn? How do you view students as learners? Who controls the curriculum in schools? Whose knowledge is important to include? Are state standards and tests desirable? What is the impact of standardized testing on learning? How do issues of race, class, and gender influence what you do? What is your definition of effective teaching?
