EDUC 386 - Diversity, Language, and Culture

3 hours
This course provides students with information and experiences that support culturally responsive teaching and learning in diverse settings. Teacher candidates examine personal and societal underlying assumptions about democracy, social order, race/ethnicity, class, abilities/exceptionalities, language and power, and gender relations. Using the foundations of intercultural and critical pedagogy, candidates use information learned to plan classroom structures and lessons that are supportive of identity development, diversity, educational equity, social justice, and inclusion. Diversity presents challenges and opportunities that push candidates to further develop the disposition of a responsive educator supportive of respectful educational environments that capitalize on the potential of each individual student. Fieldwork required.

Prerequisite(s): Acceptance into the Teacher Education Program or education minor.

This course will satisfy the multicultural core requirement.
