Preparing Educators for Diversity. A View from the Inside. A Report of the Select Seminar.
Capital Area School Development Association, Albany, NY.
This report presents information from a seminar that brought together 24 educators for 5 full days over 5 months (from November 1997-March 1998) to discuss issues of preparing preservice teachers, inservice teachers, and administrators for student diversity and equitable classrooms. Participating educators included teachers, administrators, counselors, and faculty and staff from preparatory institutions of higher learning. The discussions focused on such issues as: what diversity is, gender factors, ethnicity and religion, and socioeconomic status. For each issue, the report presents information on strategies for teacher preparation and inservice training. An appendix presents a high school student's 1997 speech to the Chenango County Grange about the New York Wired Scholars Program. (SM)
