Abstract


MULTICULTURALISM IN EDUCATION: SCIENCE OF LIFE AND SOCIAL STUDIES PRIMARY SCHOOL BOOKS ON A QUALITATIVE REVIEW

Interaction between countries has increased with the effect of globalization. As a result of the interaction between countries, cultures have also started to be influenced by each other. In recent years, people have to migrate to different countries and different geographies due to compulsory reasons such as war, natural disasters or optional reasons such as creating new job opportunities and education. These migration movements naturally caused people to carry their own cultural values and living conditions to the countries they went to. With the change in the social structure, cultural wealth has increased and countries have started to shape their policies on the axis of multiculturalism. Along with social and cultural studies, multiculturalism has started to be discussed especially in the field of education. The basic starting point of the study prepared based on this is the necessity for states to take into account the idea of cultural richness and multiculturalism in their educational policies. The main claim of the study is that students gain values such as love, sharing, tolerance, compassion and respect in schools, based on the idea that different cultures should be approached with respect and tolerance in education systems where the understanding of multicultural education is prioritized. Based on this claim, the main purpose of the study is to evaluate the issue of multiculturalism in the Turkish education system and curriculum through Primary School Life Science and Social Studies books. First of all, conceptual information on the subject of multiculturalism was included and the issue of multiculturalism in education was examined. Finally, Primary School Life Science and Social Studies text books were evaluated in the axis of multiculturalism.
