EDU 531 Tchg/Working:Multicltrl Setting
This course will assist students in developing their own understandings of historical and contemporary issues related to diversity, equity and inclusion or inclusivity. It will examine how we research and think about race, class, gender, ethnicity, nationality, religion, age, ability and sexuality. Students will explore how the issues of personal and institutional racism and classism impact student achievement, in particular the achievement gap in American K-12 schools as well as within higher education. Broader theoretical constructs related to culture and identity will be drawn upon to inform our understanding and analysis of students within the preschool to college context.
