Multicultural Education 2015

Welcome to the spring 2015 semester of Multicultural Education! 

This course is structured to recognize and explore a set of key tensions within and surrounding the contested areas of multicultural and peace and conflict education:

  • identity/sameness and diversity/difference
  • dialogue and silence
  • peace and conflict
  • culture and the individual psyche

     

This is an interestingly different kind of place for writing, both for discovering and articulating your own thoughts and for putting these in conversation with others' thoughts. It's not a site for "formal writing" or "finished thoughts." This is also a "conversation" place, a place to share your own thinking-in-progress and to find out what other people are thinking. The idea here is that your "thoughts in progress" can help others with their thinking, and theirs can help you with yours. Who are you writing for? Primarily for yourself, and for others in our course. But also - this is a "public" forum, so people anywhere on the web might look in. You're writing for yourself, for others in the class, AND for others you might or might not know. The web is giving increasing reality to the idea that there can actually evolve a world community, and you're part of helping to bring that about. Of course, feel free to comment on any post below, or to create your own post.

Here are a few specific suggestions from rebeccamec about "learning to weave in the webby...."
