Welcome!

Welcome to the Diversity LibGuide! Visit the GCC Diversity website.

We hope that this guide will help you to find research articles, reference books, websites, as well as information on GCC policies and diversity in higher education in general (for more information on each, click on the above tabs), for use in your classes, on campus, or personal interests. Please contact a librarian (information to the right) if you need further help.

  • Addiction/Recovery Status

  • Religion
  • Sex
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Size

Teach Me Different! Prizing Diversity

To fully prize diversity, a school must embrace differences in students’ abilities and learning approaches as well as in race, gender, ethnicity, and so forth. And to reach special needs children, teaching styles themselves must also be diverse. This classic program with Sally L. Smith stresses the importance of individualized instruction for students with learning disabilities and ADHD and discusses how teachers can develop unique strategies and accommodations to help these children learn more effectively. Distributed by PBS Distribution. A part of the series Teach Me Different! with Sally Smith. (55 minutes)
