Workshop 3 Addressing the Diverse Needs of Students
Getting Ready (15 minutes)
Read the following statements about diversity.
To adequately attend to cultural diversity in the classroom, teachers must look first at their own cultural background and understand how their biases affect their interactions with students. Then, teachers can examine the backgrounds and needs of the student population and understand their students’ cultural biases as well. Classroom instruction can be designed to connect the content of a course with students’ backgrounds.
