This module provides the participant with an understanding of the variety of backgrounds and cultures that may be found in a typical classroom. Field experiences give a broader view of the social aspects of diversity and cause the participant to reevaluate personal beliefs and prejudices that may adversely affect the learning process. This module also introduces the participants to the issues, challenges and the opportunities of teaching students who reflect the diversity of the American population in terms of race, ethnicity, religion, culture, sexual orientation and gender. Topics emphasized include foundations of prejudice, elements of culture and the value of diversity.
