It's more Anthropology then Sociology, but it was the closest discipline, rather than Other.

Assignment is due no later than Thursday August 9, 2018. Diversity is a subject not easily defined for study. We can point to perceived differences between people and cultures; however, that is only the tip of the proverbial iceberg, ignoring the effects of those differences in a given context. Additionally, such a focus often carries with it a sense of value-comparison and judgment in favor of one side versus the other. In the context of the field of education, the effects of diversity on individuals and the environment are almost impossible to ignore. The challenges of adopting a broad view of difference and creating an equitable learning experience for students across the board are many, and not easily met. However, the professional literature of the field is a rich resource of tools, research, and practical experience and application. For this assignment, you will review the literature related to diversity in the context of your particular focus and specialization, and choose one main diversity concern in the literature review section of your paper and include two additional diversity issues you may encounter for your literature review. We may consider differences across many criteria, including, but certainly not limited, to the following: Ethnicity. Ethnic identity. Gender. Gender identity. Culture. Ability and disability. Developmental criteria. Age and generation. For this assignment, you will be drawing on the skills you started building in the Unit 4 assignment. Similar to what you did previously, but focused now on the diversity-related challenges inherent to your specialization, you will research and review scholarly, peer-reviewed literature. Going one step farther, you will then choose and explain the main diversity challenge in your specialization, as suggested by your review. Note that you are writing a condensed literature review for this assignment. Reminder: Writing a literature review is a key part of academic work. A literature review is a piece of writing that describes what has been learned about a topic through previous research efforts. A literature review is essentially a report on work previously done in a field, to show an understanding of the context for your own writing. A literature review is not a summary of individual sources in a list, such as in the form of an annotated bibliography. Rather, the literature review paraphrases the findings from the scholarly readings you selected. You will seek the key themes from the different sources. You will use in-text citations to support the information that you learned from the scholarly readings. See section 6.11 of the APA manual, for additional detail on citing sources in text. Also refer to APA Style Central for guidance in using proper APA style. See the APA Style and Format section of the Writing Center for instructions on accessing and using APA Style Central.
