Introduction to Diversity: Understanding Diverse Students

from 35.00

Course Description: Critical mass is the theory behind creating social, political, and cultural changes by reaching a certain number of individuals. The concept is based in what the collective can do together. Intersectionality is the examination of individuals who fall into "multiple identities" - being a person of color and LGBTQ, being a woman with a disability, or being a person of color who is also in a religious minority. Intersectionality can have an incredible impact on students, their families, and our schools.

This online course will take a deep look at the concepts of privilege, intersectionality, research on students who have multiple identities, and work on ideas to make your school and community a more open environment.
