The purpose of the video entitled "Teaching Diverse Learners: Communicating Social Support" is to help educators and future teachers explore ways to integrate communication skills into diverse classroom settings. One of the major "causes" suggested in most reports for the problems in our educational system is a lack of preparation for teaching diverse learners. Teachers need to be prepared to use communication skills that account for the diversity present in our nation's schools. Educators are currently witnessing a clash of cultures in our nation's classrooms, and effective communication is essential for creating an equitable learning environment. This is an especially important concern for new teachers working in diverse classrooms. Unfortunately, effective communication skills like immediacy are often not emphasized in undergraduate teacher education curricula. This 13 minute video and its accompanying instructional resources and activities address these concerns.
