Multicultural Education


3.0 Credit, 3 Lecture, 0 Lab
Multicultural issues in educational theory and practice, with special reference to race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, and various types of exceptionality.

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.
