A fully online program, the Master of Education in Teaching Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students (TCLD) will enable candidates:
• to develop cultural and linguistic responsitivity which acknowledges that teaching and learning are inextricably embedded in students’ language, culture, and identities.
• to design and implement instructional practices and models of advancing students’ linguistic, cultural, and academic identities in public school classrooms.
• to acknowledge students’ home cultures and languages not as deficits, disadvantages, or problems but rather as resources to be leveraged for academic learning and mainstream cultural success.
The program is approved by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (PSC) and meets the PSC’s certificate upgrade requirements.
