Notes
This is a hybrid course with one in-person session on Mondays with an additional service placement. First Year Seminars are open to all students in their first year at UMBC. This course will explore and mediate the tension between the current climate of school reform and the learning needs of highly diverse students through the lens of multicultural classrooms in diverse schools. In multicultural America, classrooms mirror the diverse nature of children¿s backgrounds, cultural experiences, languages, and ¿ways of knowing¿. This course offers opportunities to learn about the challenges of local schools firsthand and to understand the implementation of federal and local policies aimed at supporting the academic success of all students, regardless of cultural, linguistic, ethnic, or diverse backgrounds. The course will first examine the multicultural nature of society and schools. Then, ¿Brown v. the Board of Education¿ will be revisited as a foundation for understanding the legal, political, and social forces that impact a multicultural education system.
