Abstract In the project report we will investigate, if multicultural pedagogy can influence the learning opportunities, of ethnic minority children in the Danish lower secondary school. The analysis reveals that, in our case study in an 8th grade, the ways to handle possible issues surrounding ethnic minorities, is to de-culturalize and therefore the social aspect is a big part of the teaching. Furthermore, in the project report we discover that the teaching methods in Danish schools, based on our fieldwork, has a lack of multiculturalism considering the curriculum. Including curriculum could be highly effective for the childrens’ learning opportunities in class, based on Kampmann and Banks’ research. Finally, it is concluded that multicultural pedagogy can influence the learning opportunities for the children, and that the teaching methods could be improved, by a combination of focusing on cultural differences, and a multicultural curriculum by applying elements from multicultural pedagogy, and applying a social aspect to the teaching like it is being done in our case study.
