Frances Kai-Hwa Wang Discusses Multicultural Toolbox: Strategies for Raising our Children with Culture(s), Language(s), and Pride
This event was held on May 27, 2009 at Traverwood Branch: Program Room
In our quickly changing world, cultural fluency and multiple languages are becoming more important for our childrenâ€™s identity, self-esteem, friendships, connections with family, and future job possibilities. In this lively and fast-paced event, Frances Kai-Hwa Wang will introduce practical tools and strategies to make cultural education a part of our everyday lives. How do we make teaching about their/our/other cultures and values â€œnormalâ€, and then use it to build better and stronger communities for all of us?
