Acing Cultural Diversity in the Classroom
*NEW COURSE SPRING 2021
As educators and lifelong learners, we must always remain dynamic in our approach to education. We must remain abreast of changing ideas and modernized techniques while always remaining constant and consistent in our dedication to making all students feel safe, welcomed, and included. Cultural Diversity, habitually associated with Social Studies, is a concept that applies to all course subjects and levels, as it focuses on and celebrates the range of races, ethnicities, religions, and affiliations that come together in our classrooms and in the world outside of academia.
Teachers enrolled in this course will explore proven strategies and pedagogical methods aimed at inclusivity, at celebrating differences while focusing on education, at making students of all backgrounds feel safe, welcomed, and included.
Applicable to teachers of all subjects/grade levels.
