Teaching and Learning for Diversity is an Essay driven course that
utilizes online resources. You will be given a number of links to web
sites that contain material pertaining to diversity. By investigating
these sites you will gain a better understanding of Teaching and
Learning for Diversity.
As you investigate the web sites, you will construct a
Teaching for Diversity Handbook that will aid you in your future
teaching. The web sites provided are broken down into four units; with each
unit beginning with an Essential Question. Your answers to these
Essential Questions will each be contained within a separate section of your
Teaching for Diversity Handbook.
Assessment is based on the work you produce in a series of
essays/listings for each Essential Question or topic you "connect with", and
on your annotated lists of sites supporting your views and reflecting your
web work. The course is Pass/Fail, in order to switch the center of judgment
from the Professor to the Teacher/Student.
