Abstract [en]

This study focuses on multiculture from a teacher's point of view. Five teachers, all working in a governmental school in Banaras were interviewed about their thoughts on multiculture and how they act in the classroom. The question formulations are the following: How do the teachers in a governmental school in Banaras approach and work with the religious diversity that exists in the classroom? In what ways are the teachers in a governmental school in Banaras observing and working with the students’ different culture? What are the thoughts about teaching and school situations with students from different socioeconomic backgrounds among teachers who work in a governmental school in Banaras? The theory in this study is an intercultural perspective which we used by using multicultural learning, culture and language. The conclusion is that the teachers are working in a inclusive way in a diverse school in Banaras, India.
