EDN 608 - Student Diversity


All educators require an understanding of how the multiplicity of students’ identities and life experiences should shape pedagogical choices. Embracing an asset-based view of diversity, this course overviews the unique learning needs of special student populations such as those who identify as gifted, who may experience learning disabilities, and who are twice exceptional. We also consider how students’ sexual, gender, linguistic, and racial identities influence their educational experiences. Special attention is paid to the developmental consequences of discriminatory schooling experiences for diverse students, and to the benefits of school integration.
