Conflict Behavior in the Diverse Classroom
Clott, Aimee D.
ProQuest LLC, D.Ed. Dissertation, University of Oregon
Increasing diversity in education necessitates the incorporation of diversity-related curricula to assure student learning and development. Responding to the diverse needs of students improves learning and development for all students, which in turn fosters inclusive environments in education. Avoidance of conflicts sparked by differences encountered in diverse classrooms may prevent the incorporation of diversity-related curricula. The literature suggests that the predominance of conflict-avoidance among educational professionals may be related to previous exposure to diversity-related issues and content in their educational training. However, empirical evidence of conflict-avoidance among educational professionals in response to this type of exposure has yet to be established. This study surveys students enrolled in a diversity-related education course in an effort to estimate the effects of diversity-related training on conflict-avoidant behaviors.
