ED 220. Teaching Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Learners (OPO course)

Three credits

This course will address the urgent need for multicultural education by covering topics such as racism, bias, and cultural information in order to help students develop strategies for creating within their classrooms knowledge of, appreciation of, and respect for diversity. Teaching strategies for English Language Learners and issues relevant to ELLs, particularly immigration and globalization, will be discussed. The course will also help students develop the knowledge base and instructional skills necessary to teach their future students basic world geography in order to understand the cultural and political effects that geography has had on the diverse cultural groups included in the American educational system.

Prerequisite: ED 190. Offered fall and spring semesters.
