ED 603 Foundations of Curriculum and Instruction for Culturally Diverse Settings (3)
The multicultural forces that influence curriculum and instruction are analyzed: philosophy, Psychology, pedagogy/learning, sociology, knowledge, and evaluation. Major approaches to curriculum and instruction are contrasted with an eye to current standards in curriculum. Students apply theory to the development and supervision of a curricular and instructional plan for a situation relevant to a culturally diverse setting, including at-risk youth and students with English language learners. This plan will integrate comprehensive family, school, and community partnerships.
