This course will encourage a culturally pluralistic and global perspective on the equitable education of culturally and linguistically diverse student populations. Students will investigate the philosophical, theoretical and historical foundations of multicultural education; the values inherent in cross-cultural communication; and relationships between verbal and nonverbal communication systems. Interpersonal skills for encouraging harmony between the dominant culture and culturally and linguistically diverse populations will be topics for investigation. Students will design their own research initiatives to examine, evaluate, and/or develop curricular materials.
