How Student Diversity Enriches The Learning
Environment?
  • Students self-awareness is enhanced by
    diversity.
  • Student diversity contributes to cognitive
    development.
  • The classroom is peculiarly the marketplace
    of ideas. William J. Brennan
  • Student diversity prepares learners for their
    role as responsible members of society.
  • The classroom can provide more than just theory
    given by the teacher in a lecture. With student
    diversity, the classroom becomes a public place
    where community can be practiced. Suzanne Morse
  • Student diversity can promote harmony.

12
Some Tips On Student Diversity
  • Encourage learners to share their personal
    history and experiences.
  • Integrate learning experiences and activities
    which promote students multicultural and
    cross-cultural awareness.
  • Aside from highlighting diversity, identify
    patterns of unity that transcend group
    differences.
  • Every human is, at the same time, like all
    other humans, like some humans, and like no other
    human. Clyde Kluckholn cited in Wong, 1991)
  • Communicate high expectations to students from
    all sub-groups.

  1. Use varied instructional methods to accommodate
    student diversity in learning styles.
  2. Vary the examples you use to illustrate concepts
    in order to provide multiple contexts that are
    relevant to students from diverse backgrounds.
  3. Adapt to the students diverse backgrounds and
    learning styles by allowing them personal choice
    and decision-making opportunities concerning what
    they will learn and how they will learn it.
  4. Diversify your methods of assessing and
    evaluating student learning.
  5. Purposely, form small-discussion groups of
    students from diverse backgrounds. You can form
    groups of students with different learning
    styles, different cultural background, etc.
