Of the innumerable problems facing American schools today, one of the most pressing is the shortage of teachers equipped with the skills necessary to help diverse students achieve academic success. Lack of aggressive efforts to include strategies to help preservice teachers understand and develop culturally sensitive and relevant pedagogy will result in these children continually being excluded from full participation in the educational discourse of American schools. This article looks at a community awareness project, which was designed as an approach to enhance preservice and inservice teachers' level of cultural sensitivity toward culturally and linguistically diverse children.
