EDUC 215 - Culturally Responsive Environment

3 credits (3 lecture)
This course addresses two of the Guiding Principles included in the Early Learning Standards for Pre-kindergarten/Early Childhood, developed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education along with expectations set forth by the No Child Left Behind Act. The focus of this class is to enable prospective teachers to gain an understanding of the diverse needs of students in order to teach them effectively in a culturally responsive environment and to give them exposure to the variety of cultures in which they may find themselves living and teaching.
