Using Multicultural Cinderella Books To Engage Students in Comprehension Strategies. Classroom Connections


Teachers can help their young students build a strong foundation for multicultural understanding by introducing them to stories from many cultures and teaching them to use the cognitive strategies that enable them to comprehend and experience cultures different from their own. Multicultural literature can become a powerful tool that illustrates for children the similarities that exist between cultures and begins to ease cultural prejudice and intolerance. In particular, folktales can help children connect to their past and to other cultures.
