I found EDUC 5173 Diversity in the Classroom, taught by Dr. Sourdot, to be a very interesting class. It enabled me to see that diversity is much more than just ethnicity. There are religious, social and physical diversities to name just a few. This course introduced strategies and activities I can incorporate into my lessons so my students can learn how to be appropriately sensitive to those who are different then they are. I will have a classroom culture that appreciates diversity because I know that in a positive, non-threatening environment learning can only flourish when we embrace each other’s differences.
