Francisco STUDENT DIVERSITY Prepared by Rizza C. Samson EVERY ONE IS UNIQUE INDIVIDUAL DIFFERENCES Factors that Bring about Student Diversity

In all learning environments, individuals interact with other who are in some way different from them. Recall how these differences were shown in your class tally – gender, and racial, ethnic, or cultural background (nationality, province, language.) This diversity also comes from other factors like the following: 1.) Socioeconomic status- the millionaires lifestyle differs from that of the middle income or lower income group. 2.) Thinking/learning style- some of you learn better by seeing something; others by just listening; and still others by manipulating something. 3.) Exceptionalities- in class there maybe one who has difficulty in spoken language comprehension or in seeing, hearing, etc.
A teacher may be challenged to handles a class with students so diverse. There may be students having different cultural background, different abilities, different attitudes and behavior.

- Some teachers might see this diversity as a difficult predicament, really hassle!

- Some teachers may see a diverse classroom as an exciting place to learn not just for students, but for her as well.

- Some teachers may choose to respect and celebrate diversity Brief: 1. 2. 4. 3. How Student Diversity Enriches the Learning Environment RUSSIA Student's self awareness is enhanced by diversity. Exposing students to others with diverse backgrounds and experiences also serves to help students focus on their awareness of themselves. (when they see others are different) Student diversity prepares learners for their role as responsible members of the society.

The classroom can provide more than just theory given by the teacher in a lecture. With student diversity, the classroom becomes a public place where community can be practiced. Student diversity contributes to cognitive development. The opportunity to gain access to the perspectives of peers and to learn from other students, rather than the instructor only, may be especially important promoting the cognitive development of the learners.
