Abstract
The factual condition describes how the social condition of Indonesian society is increasingly critical. This is triggered by a variety of unresolved social problems. Social problems become the scourge of homework together. A multicultural approach integrated with Social Studies (IPS) Education learning offers an alternative through the application of diversity-based educational strategies and concepts existing in the community. This paper aims to describe theoretically how to integrate multicultural and IPS approaches. Thus, the portion of multicultural education and IPS is able to provide learners with sensitivity in the face of symptoms and social problems rooted in differences. The differences are such as tribe, race, religion, and values that occur in the community environment for the cultivation of unity. Therefore, the substance and model of this learning will be able to focus the study on the appreciation of cultural diversity.
