Teaching Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students Certificate Program Outcomes

Program Outcomes

Teachers who successfully complete this certificate will be able to engage in critical examination of their teaching practice in order to better serve culturally and linguistically diverse students. They will be able to:

  • identify student strengths and community assets
  • incorporate strengths/ assets into instructional practice
  • reflect on their teaching practice by using multiple sources of data
  • advocate for quality practices/programs to meet the unique needs of their students
  • work effectively with culturally and linguistically diverse students by integrating language development and content area instruction.

There is a strong alignment between the coursework in this certificate and the TAPS standards that comprise the TKES assessment system for teachers in Georgia. Standards such as professional knowledge, Instructional Planning, Differentiation and Communication are addressed throughout all six courses in the Teaching Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students graduate certificate, and the remaining six standards are addressed in one or more courses.
