Description of Training Session: 

The cultural composition of American society has undergone a substantial shift in the span of a single generation. The portion of minority students has almost doubled, rising from 22 percent student population 30 years ago to 43 percent today. These population dynamics have profound implications for child care providers and early childhood educators. 

This course describes common cultural biases and their adverse effects on child care and early childhood education. It also discusses academic policies, teaching strategies, and curriculum processes that enhance early childhood development in today's multicultural society.

Learning Objectives: 

  • DEFINE multiculturalism.    
  • IDENTIFY common cultural biases.  
  • RECALL adverse effects of cultural biases on child care and early childhood education.
  • IDENTIFY academic policies that enhance education in a multicultural environment.    
  • IDENTIFY teaching strategies that facilitate education of a multicultural early childhood population.  
  • RECALL curriculum processes appropriate for a multicultural early childhood population.    
  • SELECT teacher actions and activities appropriate for a multicultural environment.

Agenda: 

  • Introduction
  • Educator Self-Awareness
  • Role of Administrators
  • Role of Teachers
  • Summary
  • End of Lesson Test

This is a self-paced course that and can be saved and resumed during any point. Assessment question and answer sessions during the course monitor the students’ progress, and support the student’s progression, and learning objectives. There is a test at the end of each course. The questions on the test are completely based on the materials covered in the specific course. The student must get 70% or better to pass the test. If 70% is not achieved, then the training system automatically takes the student back through the course to review the materials that were missed on the test. The student is then returned to the test to try again for a second attempt if needed.

    It was very helpful to have learning objectives laid out at the beginning of the training to get my mind in gear for what I was about to study. The training progressed in a logical and organized way.
