EDUC 221   Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for K-12 Educators (3 Hours)

This course explores multicultural education in K-12 contexts through a critical analysis of several key themes: power, privilege, and difference. Students will explore how the social construction of identity is shaped by race, ethnicity, gender, social class, sexuality, language, and ability within multiracial and linguistically diverse classrooms. This course identifies ways that teachers co-construct students' identities as well as their learning and classroom engagement.
