The primary outcomes for candidates pursuing the Diverse Learners Concentration are focused on developing an advanced level of knowledge, skills and dispositions associated with teaching students with diverse learning needs through a variety of research-based instructional strategies, including the use of technology.
A more in-depth understanding of the learning characteristics of students from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and those with exceptional learning needs, along with the ability to create positive learning environments for these students, will be the crux of this concentration area.
In addition, candidates will develop their skills in critically examining and using research to inform their practice and they will develop the competence and confidence to serve as advocates for their students and provide leadership in their schools.
While evaluation of an individual’s transcript is required in order to verify the specific courses and Praxis II examinations needed for any add-on certification area, in most cases the required courses offered through the Diverse Learners path should prepare a licensed educator with the needed coursework, knowledge, skills and dispositions for certification in Learning Disabilities.
