Teaching New Yorkers

Topics in Multicultural Education

In the Teaching New Yorkers program at LaGuardia Community College, you will discuss the changing role of education in a diverse multicultural democracy, and issues such as the relationship between class, race, ethnicity and school achievement. You will gain hands-on experience as a literacy tutor working with a college-bound adult population of English language learners. You will participate in a highly interactive and engaging Conflict Resolution Workshop once a week, in which you’ll get to know your peers, and yourself. All students will build electronic portfolios (ePortfolios) documenting their learning, experiences and reflections. A typical day in this summer program will include a "Topics in Multicultural Education" course, preparation for and reflections on tutoring, and tutoring sessions with students in the CUNY Language Immersion Program at LaGuardia.
