Your answers to the essential questions,
contained in the four units of the course, will be used to create a
Teaching for Diversity Handbook. Each unit in the course should
have a separate section within the handbook. These sections should be
further divided into two parts: A Big Ideas and Essential Questions
section, and a Resources and Strategies section.
As you read through the given sites, focus on
the essential question and which areas of the site provide you with the best

classes you teach.

For instance, you might
write “The site XXXX [http://www.xxx.com] gave me a different perspective on
how to help students learn _____. It also cleared up for me something I was
confused about, and that is what educators mean by __________.”
Your annotation should elaborate on your reasoning and ideas, of course.
