A Fall 2019 cohort of students in Elementary Education, with an Early Childhood Concentration, completed their last course, EC 3330. DIVERSITY became the focus of this course because, when looking back over the past several semesters, it was a common thread in the students’ journeys as emerging teachers.
Under the supervision of Dr. Julie Ricks-Doneen, the class created a meaningful website to inform their fellow student-learners, future teachers, instructors at Oakland University, and the wider community about the significance of being mindful of diversity in the context of early childhood education.
“Learning about diversity is intriguing, challenging, intentional, and most of all, ongoing,” Dr. Julie Ricks-Doneen of the Human Development and Child Studies at OU said. “I say thanks to these students for allowing me to join their journey!”
