In Practicing what we teach: confronting diversity in teacher education there are many chapters that discuss the issue of diversity and racism in the classroom, but one chapter in particular Classroom Environments for by Keith Osajima focuses on didactic strategies to improve the classroom environment for the students.

One technique that helps debate racism in
the classroom is by the use of multicultural literature. He explains that in the late he taught a course titled and in a small North-Eastern elite college, and while during one of the semesters the college began to separatism and severe between the predominantly % white and the growing African American student population.

While trying to find strategies that would diffuse the racial tensions in the class itself, he discovered
that the use of multicultural literatures that discuss controversial issues provided the students with a common dominator of experience. They were able to understand the other culture more easily with an objective text that described the experiences of the oppressed culture. This is a technique that can be used a school or classroom where the racial tension is high and the cultural background of the students is diverse.
