Diversity in the United States


The United States has become increasingly diverse. The unique perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences of students can enrich the learning environment if those differences do not become barriers. As an educator, it is imperative that you become knowledgeable about aspects of culture and diversity, and develop competence in creating an equitable learning environment for all students.

In this task you will write an essay(suggested length of 2–5 pages) in which you explain the importance of diversity consciousness for educators.


Your submission must be your original work. No more than a combined total of 30% of the submission and no more than a 10% match to any one individual source can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly. An originality report is provided when you submit your task that can be used as a guide.

1. To help an educator gain knowledge of each diversity group, cite source information to support your description in part A.

2. Describe a challenge related to the diversity background that each identified group may experience in a school setting (i.e., one challenge for each group in part A).

3. Describe an instructional strategy by which educators can support the educational achievement of students from each of the identified groups (i.e., one strategy for each group in part A).

a. Cite source information that supports the instructional strategies described in part A3.
