Multiculturalism in the Modern World

Multiculturalism in the Modern World: Jen Holladay at TEDxDenverTeachers

Understanding and embracing multiculturalism and teaching students cultural competency is critical for competing and succeeding in our diverse democracy. How can you ensure that cultural competency is an outcome of your students' education? Presented by Jen Holladay, Highline Academy Charter School Board President.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

I chose this video because in today's climate, we find it easy to introduce children to various cultures through food and stories, however there is so much more to history than that, and the sooner it is introduced, the better off our society will be in the future.
