As the nation’s population shifts toward a strongly multiracial and multicultural composition, teacher effectiveness can gain significantly from gaining insight and staying up-to-date on the latest research on “best practices” in teaching in a culturally diverse environment. This course explores how culture shapes both students and educators and gives expert guidance on learning how to interpret, understand and incorporate insight into cultural diversity in the classroom. Teachers will learn how to best navigate through and even avoid misunderstandings and misinterpretations that can easily happen in a culturally diverse environment and will gain greater awareness about how cultural differences can affect their own behavior, discipline decisions and assessments of student ability and potential.
