Course Description: Over the last decade, new vigor and vitality has been focused on students succeeding in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses. With a desperate need for the United States to stay competitive in an increasingly globalized economy, more resources are being poured into educational and training programs to increase the number of qualified STEM professionals. Historically, women and marginalized community groups have accounted for a small portion of those pursuing STEM careers. However, more effort is being utilized to address this.

This course will examine the best practices to make STEM courses accessible to at-risk students and marginalized populations. Topics will include white privilege in science, barriers for marginalized populations, and strategies for making the content accessible for all students. In will include best practices for differentiating content for students of color, women, English learners, and students with disabilities. At the end of the course, participants will reflect on the interdisciplinary connections between standards and develop an implementation plan for best practices.

This is a one credit course.
