This diversity extends into today's classrooms. In teaching about culture, "other" cultures are not perhaps so far removed from our daily lives as perhaps before. Teachers will increasingly need to find ways of talking about culture that take into account the multicultural classroom or community in which they teach. This requires a different kind of sensitivity, different tools, and different approaches IE Cult/Values,Alt W/CD 6e. Cultural diversity should therefore be understood within the broader horizon of the unity of the human race. In a real way, this unity constitutes the primordial historical and ontological datum in the light of which the profound meaning of cultural diversity can be grasped.
