EDFI 520 Culturally Relevant Pedagogy

This course has been designed to deliver an overview of the major concepts, history, principles, theories and research related to the nature and role of culturally relevant pedagogy to construct supportive learning environments for diverse students. Through a school field experience, teachers will design and deliver standards-based culturally relevant instruction that incorporates students' cultural values and beliefs, enhances the connection between home and school culture and language and provides opportunities for students and families to share and apply their cultural perspectives to learning objectives. Teachers are encouraged to become reflective practitioners who design and implement culturally relevant, innovative teaching strategies in diverse learning environments.
