EDU 350 Diverse Populations in 21st Century Schools

A course designed to assist developing teacher candidates with the articulation and recognition of positive learning environments for the wide variety of diverse students present in 21st-century schools. This diversity includes cultural, socioeconomic, environmental, social, physical, academic, behavioral, and linguistic individual differences among students. Given these individual differences, candidates' articulations would include high expectations for individuals, understanding of various resources for meeting individual needs (including the use of support specialists), and understanding strategies for enhancing communication between and among home and school environments. Clinical Experience required. Clinical Experience placement requests will be communicated by the Director of Clinical Experiences. Candidates must request a placement by the deadline and complete the experience in the assigned placement. Transportation to and from placement is the responsibility of the candidate.
