BLMC 505 Foundations of Multicultural Education

This course focuses on various aspects of diversity in the classroom such as age, ethnicity, race, exceptionality, class, culture, language and religion. These topics are covered from both a national and international perspective. Students examine and contrast different cross-cultural perspectives and their impact on classroom language teaching. Heavy emphasis is placed on taking insights from discussions on these topics and integrating these into class activities and lesson planning, which promote a multicultural approach and tolerance for diverse opinions and student populations.
