* How can the teacher better utilize the multicultural literature to help the students of non-minority backgrounds feel more connected to students of minority backgrounds?

* This article gives much hope for the use of ethnic/multicultural literature, and gives many benefits of using the literature in the High School English Classroom. However, it does seem to presume that the teacher is proactive and willing to go out of their way to find literature and write curriculum that best helps the students' altogether educational experience.
