This course is open to both graduate and undergraduate students with an interest in developing teaching expertise, as well as first-hand knowledge of African Diaspora cultures. Students do not have to be teaching in order to register for this course.
This course is designed to assist educators in the conceptualization, preparation and delivery of curricula, which facilitate literacy learning and academic achievement generally, and specifically for children of African descent. The course will give students an opportunity to research literacy learning and teaching among African descent populations outside of the United States in order to provide a contrast to these practices within the U.S. Students enrolled in the class will meet and exchange perceptions with teachers, students, school administrators and writers in Grenada, W.I. Stduents will tour the tri-island nation, visit schools and observe class sessions at a variety of educational levels, meet with teachers and educators in the ministry of education and have opportunities to meet with Grenadian authors.
