EDUC 6539: Multicultural Education, Equity and Social Justice (3)
Lecture: 3, Lab: 0, Other: 0
Multicultural education is not just about exploring various cultures in the classroom. It is also about addressing inequities, stereotypes, and the ways they filter down to our teaching practice. Course participants will examine the meaning of their cultural paradigm ( and that of their students) and its impact on the learning environment. Educators will investigate issues such as classroom management, assessment, and giftedness through the prism of culture. By building awareness of a variety of perspectives, participants will better understand how to maximize achievement and create a more equitable educational system for all students.
