To promote the study of the historical and contemporary experiences and contributions of people of color, women, and other underrepresented groups. 3. To analyze the influence on learning of such social identities as race, class, ethnicity, language, and gender and to understand how discrimination based on these factors translates into school structures, policies and practices that perpetuate inequality. 4. To develop a sound philosophical rationale for multicultural education and critically examine the role of multicultural education in school reform and social change. 5. To develop a sharp sense of self-awareness and self-critique with regard to the impact of identity and implicit bias on teaching practice.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
