EDUC 6357 - Diversity, Development, and Learning♦


(3 sem. cr.) Diversity can have a profound influence on children’s development and learning. Education professionals in this course explore areas of diversity, including developmental and learning needs, such as English-language learners, children on the autism spectrum, and children with developmental delays. They also address the impact of living in poverty and experiencing stress/violence/trauma in the context of families, early childhood settings, and school classrooms. Applying course concepts, education professionals engage in practical exercises through which they reflect on their own perspectives and biases and learn the complex ways families influence their children. Moreover, they learn the importance of using current research and resources to improve developmental and learning outcomes for every child.
