ECC 930 - Culture and Curriculum (3)

This course will consist of a brief overview of traditional methods of choosing curriculum and examine the methods by which curriculum can be adapted to best suit student needs; this will include support and practice for how to integrate culturally relevant examples and resources. The course will develop the understanding and strategies of how curriculum, instruction, assessment, and continuous improvement are connected. The course will explore how the role of the changing demographics and community impact curriculum and outcomes, as both a policy instrument and an administrative guide. Students will develop strategies for organizational (district-wide, classroom, NFP org, etc) planning and continuous improvement including the collection and use of data for making informed decisions which impact all levels of delivery. Students will also develop strategies for addressing the critical curriculum issues of cultural competence, equity of opportunity to learn and the challenges diversity can present.
