Addressing Diversity in Teacher Education Programs
Valentin, Sylvia
Education, v127 n2 p196-202 Win 2006
Different aspects of diversity have been explored in order to assess whether preservice teachers are being prepared to meet the needs of their diverse student population. Diversity continues to be examined in a fragmented way by looking at issues separately. It seems necessary that prior to assessing preservice teachers' competence in diversity, teacher education programs be examined in their totality to determine whether they are addressing diversity in an effective manner. This article presents a holistic approach to examining diversity in education programs and describes an initiative by a college of education to infuse diversity throughout all education courses and programs.
