[1.0]
Designed to make students more aware of and sensitive to ethnic groups in the United States, this course focuses on the history and culture of the people from the areas of the world most represented in our schools. This course will provide our students with a multicultural perspective in education. The course discusses the topic of immigration and its impact on the education of culturally diverse children in urban settings and their future employment opportunities as well as the ways in which immigrant groups are perceived in our society. Participants will survey the student population in schools located where there is a high percentage of immigrant families and visit the schools in the respective areas to see how the school serves this population.
