Teacher efficacy in knowledge, understanding, attitude, and skill. Knowledge is having a consciousness of the history, culture, and values of major ethnic groups, as well as acquiring and articulating a theory of cultural pluralism. Understanding includes having cross-cultural interactions and immersion experiences in which to apply cultural theory. Attitude involves an awareness and reduction of one’s own prejudices and misconceptions about race. Skill includes planning and implementation of effective multicultural teaching practices.
