New IRIS Center Module: Classroom Diversity: An Introduction to Student Differences

The IRIS Center’s new Classroom Diversity: An Introduction to Student Differences module contains information on the different types of diversity that teachers will encounter and how teachers’ perceptions can impact their classroom instruction.

You’ll meet Ms. Christie, a history instructor at Chester Himes Middle School, who is on the case to solve the mystery of why her lessons, so popular at her old school, seem to be falling flat at Himes Middle. One of her fellow teachers—Mr. Chandler—gently suggests that maybe Ms. Christie hasn’t been planning those lessons with Himes’ diverse student population in mind. Ms. Christie isn’t so sure. Kids are kids, she thinks, and a good lesson in one school will be a good lesson in any school, right?
