Final Project Overview and Timeline
Final Project Overview
Each person in the education profession should continually add items to his or her professional
portfolio to represent his or her philosophy and beliefs about education.

Often, paraprofessional educators forget that the atmosphere of the classroom is as important as
the instructional content being delivered to the students. It is your responsibility to support the
rules for student behavior and interaction.

For the final project, you create a plan for addressing the needs and issues in a multicultural
classroom to add to your portfolio. Assume that the cultural make up of your classroom includes
at least five different ethnic and religious groups. You must address how and why you would plan
to create an atmosphere of tolerance, acceptance, and caring in your classroom environment.
Your plan must include a comprehensive discussion of the issues covered in this course that are
most applicable to your geographic area.

In addition, you must describe a plan for a culturally balanced bulletin board that could be used in
your class to focus on either a traditional Western holiday or a multicultural celebration at your
school. You may also include clip art to illustrate your plans.

This paper should be 1,050 to 1,400 words and posted as an attachment to the Individual forum.
It must follow APA guidelines for format and style.
