CIED 2050 Foundations of Bilingual and Multicultural Education


This course will provide participants with the knowledge necessary for understanding the historical, political, legal, social and educational aspects of bilingual and multicultural education and how such knowledge influences teacher practices in Bilingual and ESL progams. Critical discussion of historical and current stuggles for access to education in American history is central to this course. Another key focus of this course is learning about methods through which teachers can effectively explore and celebrate the diversity in language, culture, religion, gender, ability and other areas inherent in American classrooms through engaging in culturally relevant instruction; incorporating meaningful, authentic assessment; and including multiple perspectives throughout the curriculum. New research in the areas of bilingual and multicultural educatIon will be examined, and students will analyze and apply best practices based on this research. Prerequisite(s): CIED 2030
