EDUC 522 (3)
This course facilitates teacher candidates’ understanding that diversity within a learning community is a rich resource, and one that requires commitment to policies and practices that ensure equitable opportunities for academic success and well-being. Teacher candidates will explore how the intersectionalities of gender, socio-economic status, race, language, faith, culture, sexual orientation, and ability position students differently with respect to power and privilege. Examination of ministry publications and culturally responsive teaching strategies for using students’ prior linguistic and cultural knowledge, as well as other aspects of their identities will scaffold the learning of new concepts and skills. Specific emphasis on learners with exceptionalities and multilingual language learners will be explored.
