Course Overview

This course focuses on the importance of multicultural education and culturally pluralistic educational practices for all students, and considers the impact of personal, social, political, educational and cultural factors on school success or failure. Topics include: educational equity, anti-racist education, bilingual education, school reform and diversity in U.S. society and the Deaf community in particular. This course considers the Deaf to represent a separate cultural and linguistic group, and furthermore that the situations of multicultural deaf children and adults, based in two distinct communities, differ from the majority Deaf experience. Emphasis will be on the communities of multicultural deaf children and adults and their families that we as professionals and practitioners are most likely to come into contact with, including African Americans, Hispanic/Latinos, Asian/Pacific Islanders and Native Americans. Additionally, issues of class, gender, sexual orientation, ethnic origin, religious diversity, and disability will be considered.
