Lecture: 3, Lab: 0, Other: 0
Our cultures, learning styles, and varied experiences affect the ways we teach and learn. Connecting with students and valuing what each individual brings to the classroom are keys to ensuring that all students achieve at high levels. In this course, participants will gain an understanding of the ways context influences both instruction and learning in the classroom. Through the use of case studies, a 5-step problem-solving method, collaboration and reflective practice, course participants will explore new methods of culturally responsive teaching and differentiated instruction geared toward students of all learning styles and multiple intelligences. New knowledge, skills and attitudes will enable participants to better serve their increasingly diverse students.
