Abstract:

This document provides the framework for six other related documents in a series that focuses on diversity in the classroom. Section 1, "Introduction," explains that children in any Canadian classroom are not homogeneous, and such diversity presents teachers with challenges and obligations. The chapter reviews the subjects addressed in the series' other six documents. It explains that teachers who work with diverse students must be capable of analysis, visioning, and advocacy--elements associated with reflection. Section 2, "Diversity as the Norm," defines diversity and explains that teachers must be able to understand the shifting, evolving paradigms in education in order to be able to serve the needs of all students. Section 3, "The Reflective Educator," explains essential elements of the reflective process (open mindedness, responsibility, and whole heartedness) and discusses the importance of reflective teaching. Section 4, "Equality and Discrimination," defines the two words as related to teaching diverse students. Section 5, "Moral and Legal Obligations," discusses the moral values that guide teachers in their interactions and examines how they are reinforced by human rights legislation. Section 6, "Yes, But What If ..." discusses how to ensure equality if one student's behavior disrupts everyone else's education. Section 7, "An Invitation," presents two student scenarios from the viewpoint of the student, teacher, administrator, and school board. (Contains 50 references.) (SM).
