Theoretical and pedagogical approaches to Culturally Sustaining Pedagogy (CSP)—curriculum design tools and instructional strategies that reflect the diversity of students’ cultural and linguistic backgrounds in elementary classrooms.
This course is required for completion of the MAT in Elementary Education.
With an increasing diverse (culturally, linguistically, ethnically, etc...) k-12 student population, it is necessary that institutions of higher education systematically build into their programs courses that prepare prospective teacher candidates to be able to educate this diverse group of students in ways that legitimizes them. Culturally Sustaining Pedagogy (CSP) seeks to empower students educationally and to expand their capabilities in other spheres including social, emotional, and political arenas by making students’ own skills, languages, and attitudes meaningful in the classroom. Our current MAT program does not have a course that specifically does this. EDEL 701 is designed to fill this gap.
What is the course number? Is it EDEL 701? or EDEL 709? The syllabus list EDEL 701 but in the justification section of this proposal, EDEL 709 is listed. This is confusing.
Please make recommended revisions. Thanks!
