EDUC 6650 - Enhancing Learning Through Linguistic and Cultural Diversity♦


(3 sem. cr.) In this course, education professionals explore the value of linguistic and cultural diversity and the powerful learning opportunities it affords today’s classrooms and schools. They examine their attitudes, beliefs, and biases regarding linguistically and culturally diverse students, families, and communities, and they learn approaches for working together to ensure high levels of learning for all students. Through real-world observations, they assess strategies for ensuring equitable access to high-quality learning experiences. Education professionals also explore effective practices, such as cultural responsiveness, anti-bias curriculum, differentiated instruction, and academic vocabulary development. (Prerequisite(s): Endorsement candidates must complete special education endorsement courses and receive a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher prior to moving into M.S. in Education courses.)
