ABSTRACT

Indonesia is a multicultural country because it has diverse tribes, religions, cultures and races. This multicultural reality is both a wealth and a threat. Multiculturalism is wealth when positively positioned so that it enriches the treasures of life. Conversely, multiculturalism is a threat when it is not managed properly. For this reason, positive awareness and attitudes towards multicultural reality must be built systematically. Educational institutions are instruments that are believed to be able to carry out this task properly. Through the curriculum, students will receive subject matter that can enrich understanding of multicultural reality. This article discusses the approach to develop a multicultural education curriculum at Darul Hikmah Modern Islamic Boarding School, Tulungagung, Indonesia. The development of this multicultural education curriculum is important in building students' understanding to have perspectives that value diversity in various fields of life. The research method used is qualitative and data mining is done by in-depth interviews, observation and documentation. Interviews were conducted with scholars, teachers and students. Observations were made to observe the learning process and implementation of the curriculum from class to class. The documentation is being carried out for the learning process and supporting documents for this research. This study found that there are three approaches used in curriculum development, namely the contribution approach, the additive approach, and the transformation approach. The contribution approach is carried out by meeting students' basic needs. An additive approach is carried out by providing reading books in the library, introducing social life through video, integrating multicultural values and applying them in learning. While the transformation approach is applied to high school students because at this level the students already have a broader perspective so they can analyze the diversity around them.
