Pre-Conference: MULTICULTURAL/DIVERSITY WORKSHOP

This workshop will address meeting CED/CEC standards on multicultural education and diversity within teacher preparation programs for deaf and hard of hearing education. In order to prepare preservice teachers who are culturally responsive to the growing diversity in schools, teacher educators need an understanding of the knowledge base of multicultural education and multicultural issues. Strategies, curriculum, and resources will be shared with and among participants.

Participants are asked to bring examples of syllabi that infuse and address multicultural issues, as well as titles of recommended books.

Extensive handouts will be provided.

The cost of the workshop will be $35.
