Teaching For All

Tuba Arabaci Atlamaz

Abstract


This poster presentation aims to share information about the importance of improving excellence in teaching. As part of the nature of the profession it is important for teachers to embrace all of the students and their families without looking at their race, ethnicity, religion, and language. This poster shares three important aspects in teaching: gender equity, community-based service learning projects in  teacher education, and language education for children with Down syndrome. Implications for educational settings will also be shared.
