Abstract: Multicultural education should be integrated into the classroom to cope with the changes in the global world and to foster students’ multicultural awareness. Teachers can utilize learning materials to develop students’ multicultural literacy. Therefore, the study tried to investigate teachers’ perception on promoting multicultural literacy through learning materials and to figure out difficulties encountered in developing the materials. The data for the study were obtained from questionnaire and interview and were analyzed using mixed methods approach. The questionnaire, consisting of open-ended questions and closed-ended questions using the Likert scale, was administered to 50 teachers to find out their perceptions. Meanwhile, the interview was conducted to gain in-depth explanations of promoting multicultural literacy through English learning materials. The participants of the study have already shown high awareness on multicultural education and the importance of promoting multicul tural literacy in EFL classroom. The findings of the study indicate that carefully selected teaching materials such as videos, podcast, and literary works can help teachers in promoting multicultural literacy. Thus, it is suggested that teachers should creatively choose teaching materials that not only can enhance students' language skills but also can foster their multicultural awareness. (More)
