Description: PDE COURSE #20210074. Diversity in the classroom is increasing. For the first time in history, the majority of students are racial and ethnic minorities. Unfortunately, the teaching styles, materials, and classrooms do not reflect these diverse cultures and backgrounds, thus leaving the majority of students disconnected from the learning process. Students need to be exposed to authors and characters that look, sound, and act like them. Classrooms need to reflect diversity, not only on holidays but all the time. Spanish culture, achievements of minorities, and black history need to be embedded daily not taught only during a designated month or on a holiday. When students' backgrounds are not considered, problems such as language barriers, systemic discrimination, and lack of representation occur. In this three-credit online course, participants will explore the principles of culturally responsive teaching and examine teaching strategies that promote a culturally responsive classroom.
