Abstract

This article synthesizes an overview of the relationship between multicultural pedagogy and children's social skills—guidelines for the preferable reporting items for systematic reviews. After screening, there are nine studies eligible for inclusion were identified. Results showed multicultural pedagogy is advantageous for developing children's social skills because it enables children to recognize cultural diversity and comprehend their own and others' cultures. Using multicultural literature is a means of promoting multicultural pedagogy in early childhood education settings. Educating teachers about multicultural pedagogy is a primary challenge. The lack of studies with high heterogeneity calls for further research to explore the difference between traditional teaching methods and multicultural pedagogy on the influence of children's social skill development.
