he final paper, 10-12 pages in length, will require you to describe your community demographics and predict the type of diversity you might expect to find in your classroom. Then, identify at least 3 cases which represent some of the different groups found in your community. (If you truly live in a mono-cultural area then, simply choose 3 backgrounds you would like to better understand). You can use real examples of individuals you know, examples from the textbook or class links, or by scouring the internet. The purpose of identifying real students is to help you keep in mind the individualized identities of students from these groups and avoid reducing groups to stereotypes. (Most likely, you will need to imagine those examples at an age appropriate to the students you teach or plan to teach).
Next, research and identify the community resources and social services available to you. What institutional barriers do you anticipate you might need to contend with in order to provide the best possible learning opportunity for the students in your community? Create a plan of action which will help you cope with these potential barriers and ensure that families and communities feel that you care about their success.
Research and identify forms of intercultural communication you will likely need to become proficient in and sensitive to in order to help your students feel valued. Then, design techniques and strategies which will enable you to apply these human relationships skills in the educational setting and in your interactions with families from diverse communities. What do you anticipate will determine the success or failure of your school system in their effort to address students from these groups?
You must include 8-10 resources to support your ideas. All in-text citations and reference page must be formatted according to APA guidelines.
