Description: PDE COURSE #202100074. 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.

Media is an influential force in the lives of students. However, when it comes to being able to recognize real news versus a fake news article that might appear on their feed, the majority cannot tell the difference. Teachers have a responsibility to teach students how to evaluate and analyze informational text. In order to be an informed citizen, students must know how to access, analyze, evaluate, create and act using all forms of media. It is imperative that students possess these skills so that they can make informed decisions as adults. The ability to analyze and evaluate various forms of media is also known as media literacy skills. During this 3-credit online course, participants will come to understand what media literacy is, its importance in the classroom, how to integrate media literacy skills and design lessons and activities that will develop students' media literacy skills.
