AVATAR Script: Welcome to the wickie (wiki) for E D U C six two five. We will use this technological tool to support our cultural and educationally responsive development. It will serve as a repository for resources, ideas, assignments, and discussions. Let's begin our journey.

As you move through this wiki, and the course, consider how you might use the tools, assignments, and strategies presented in your own pedagogical practice?

For example, how might you use the wiki concept? Who would be your target audience - colleagues, students, parents? (A SPECIFIC TARGET AUDIENCE is REQUIRED)

For example, how might you use the Avatar tool?

 

Questions to consider as we move through the course: 

What knowledge is of most worth? Who decides?

How will the increasingly diverse populations in the U.S. influence schools as we know them? - teachers as we know them?

If the world is, as Thomas Friedman maintains flat, how will / should globalization change the face of education in the U.S.?

What do you see as your personal responsibility, as well as the responsibility of the profession, in this new, flat world?

What research, position, voice should you use or represent if you are to be characterized as "Culturally & Educationally Responsive?"

How do we discover, create, use, share strategies and knowledge about ways to "improve academic achievement and race relations in educational settings?" (2010, p.xi)

What is the major purpose of multicultural education and who is it for?

What knowledge is of most worth? Who decides?

 

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course provides students with the theory, knowledge, and strategies to teach the culturally diverse and special needs population in today’s classrooms. This course goes beyond the usual rhetoric on promoting diversity to present real-world guidance and recommendations for successful teaching in the changing classroom environment.

CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK AND CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE TEACHING       

Specifically, this course is designed to address the following areas of the Department of Teacher Education’s Conceptual Framework:

I. To Know: Understand the theories underlying the concept of multicultural education and culturally responsive teaching; understand how ethnicity and culture affects education in the local school system; know the roles & responsibilities of culturally responsive educators; synthesize and apply the culturally responsive teaching standards II. To Do: Facilitate learning experiences that demonstrate successful teaching methods using technology (e.g. using computers for searches of culturally relevant curriculum using software to overcome language barriers); assessing and evaluating student learning by choosing appropriate multiple assessment tools and strategies.

III. To Be: Exhibit positive values; demonstrate sound judgment, integrity, responsibility, and model ethical behavior (as one teaches in a diverse classroom); show an ability to communicate respect, acceptance, and cooperation in the effective engagement of others; become critical consumers and evaluators of culturally relevant teaching material.

COURSE OBJECTIVES: Tied to the Department of Teacher Education’s Conceptual Framework.

The principal goals of the course are to provide those enrolled with experiences designed to enable them to:  

     1. To know, understand and value how cultures vary in mores, expectations, traditions, and values.

     2. To be aware that mistakes in understanding and knowledge about a child’s culture can result in unfortunate

circumstances that may be avoided when the teacher is sensitive to such possibilities.

     3. To practice learning on a deep level about another culture and to transfer that practice to finding out about the

cultures of students on a level that allows the teacher to connect with and reach a student whom might possibly be alienated

     4. To practice developing a wide variety of instructional adaptations to meet the needs of diverse classrooms and

schools.

     5. To be a reflective, collaborative, and responsive decision-maker, facilitator, and role model within the classroom,

school, and community concerning culturally responsive pedagogy.

     6. To recognize and understand one’s personal cultural positioning and the resultant impact on instructional preferences and student expectations
