FDED 247 - The Family as Educator: Multicultural Dimensions


Semester Hours: 3
Spring
Within America’s multiculturally diverse society, families are the first educators not only for infants, children, and adolescents, but for adults. Within the context of the family, important values, attitudes, and skills are first shaped and continue to be reinforced. Gender roles, religious identity, social class status, and ethnic group membership are conveyed within families and further reinforced by community institutions. Educators seeking to understand learners (be they infants, children, adolescents, or adults) must attend to familial patterns and variations as well as to community-based institutions. Education is, in the final analysis, much more than schooling.
