Education: The achievement of culturally diverse children The research paper must be fifteen to twenty pages in length, with ten to fifteen references, and must be comprehensive. Students must address each aspect of the topic separately and extensively, exactly as outlined in the assignment, and use research evidence from books, articles and professional web sites to support their arguments and conclusions. Using research evidence to support your observations and comments, write a research paper addressing the following issues separately and extensively. a. What are the major issues and concerns affecting educational services for culturally and linguistically diverse students with disabilities and their families? How should assessment, curriculum, and instructional methods differ for students from culturally or linguistically different backgrounds? b.If a student cannot speak, read, or write English well enough to progress in the school curriculum, does it make a difference whether the limited English proficiency is caused by cultural differences or by a disability? What is the appropriate placement for this student? c. What is meant by bilingual special education? Who is served in these programs? Why is there such a national debate about the issue of overrepresentation of culturally and linguistically diverse students in disability categories and their underrepresentation in gifted education?
