- Max Participants:
This course is designed to prepare future educators to be effective, culturally conscious instructors in multi-cultural classrooms. Such topics will be covered as the meaning of culture, prejudice, racism, ethnicity, pluralism, and assimilation, as well as exploring the general history of multi-culturalism in the United States. Specific minorities such as African-Americans, Latinos, Asians, Native Americans and Arab Americans will also be examined, as well as looking at gender and socio-economics as factors influencing the classroom. We will look at the relationship between culture and education, and learn how to design curriculum that is culturally sensitive and inclusive.
