Introduces students to cultural mentoring, the role of cultural identity in schooling, and culturally responsive pedagogies through a partnership with a local elementary School. Students will be assigned fifth grade mentees to work with throughout the semester and will work with other mentors to plan group activities for the after-school program. Requires 2 hours/per week outside of meeting times for participant-observation at a local elementary school. Mentors can repeat the mentoring component one time for 1-credit. This course is designed for first generation and/or students from minoritized backgrounds who can serve as role models for Elementary students in a Dual Language Program. Interested students should contact the instructor prior to enrolling. Previously offered as a special topics course.
