This course focuses on understanding the student within the context of his or her environment.

The first part of this course focuses on cultural factors that influence learning and their implications for instruction. The latter part of the course examines the involvement of significant individuals in a child’s academic programs and explores barriers to family involvement. Course content also introduces cross-cultural pre-referral screening tools for gifted and special-needs English-language learners.

Participants will develop strategies for establishing positive school, family, and community partnerships and explore tools for combating racism and bias in schools.
