St. Paul Immersion School
One of the Foundations of Education courses (EDFD 308: Human Relations and Student Diversity) is available in May as a St. Paul Urban Immersion experience each year. While spending a full week in St. Paul, Teacher Education students have the opportunity to learn and apply multicultural education theory & practices in real urban school settings.
Students will acquire knowledge of said theory through assigned readings, group discussions, and educational seminars led by WSU faculty and cultural consultants from the St. Paul community. This community and the accompanying school district offer pre-service teachers rich experiential learning settings in which they will both observe and interact with licensed teachers, students, and community members who may differ by ethnicity, race. language, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and family structures.
