- DescriptionMany educators in urban areas are faced with the challenge of educating students who have recently arrived from other countries, or are the children of immigrants; in addition, there is increasing concern about the educational needs of historical 'mirity groups'.

Topics include: - immigrant resettlement and adjustment; - the role of the school in welcoming newcomers and integrating them into the life of the school; - how to provide an inclusive school and classroom environment; - how to develop a curriculum that includes many cultural perspectives; - how to develop an inclusive instructional style; - how to assess student progress and achievement in the multicultural school.
