EDUC 215 - Recognizing Diversity through Family, School, and Community Partnerships

3 credits (3 lecture)
This course examines the relationship of cultural values and social contexts in the formation of a child’s self-concept and success in the educational environment. Students will be challenged to critique and utilize the principles of culturally responsive teaching, including establishing cultural connections, stressing collectivity as well as individuality, and examining the role of prejudice, stereotypes, racism, sexism, and learning exceptionalities in the early childhood setting. Strategies that bolster the partnerships between school, home, and the community for the purpose of student achievement will be discussed.
