Course Outcomes: 

Epistemological assumptions

The student will gain and evidence a greater sensitivity to both epistemological assumptions, proxemic patterns and discourse patterns that tend to characterize various subcultural groups along the lines of race/ethnicity, SES, and gender, and nation-of-origin.

Application to teaching and learning

The student will learn to apply this heightened sensitivity to teaching and learning in the pluralistic postmodern classroom, as well as to being a site-based educational leader and policy maker/interpreter.
