The Case of Deming, New Mexico: International Public Education. Multicultural Videocase Series.
Herbert, Joanne M., Ed.; McNergney, Robert F., Ed.
This guide accompanies one of a pair of videocases depicting educational life in Deming, New Mexico. The videocase includes 28 minutes of unstaged but edited videotape footage of teaching and learning in and around junior high and mid-high schools in Deming. The first section of the guide, "Teaching Note" (Todd Kent) contains a transcript of the videotape and questions designed to help instructors engage people in case-based discussions. In the teaching note section the videotape is divided into five segments: (1) Hank Dominguez, director of personnel for the Deming Schools, provides background on the district's practice of educating students from Mexico; (2) Paulette Quarrell, a teacher of junior-high school English, teaches a class on descriptive writing and reflects on her life as a teacher; (3) Ray Trejo conducts a bilingual class at the mid-high school for students from Palomas, Mexico, and describes his reasons for teaching; (4) students who live in Palomas, Mexico, and attend Trejo's class share some thoughts about going to school in Deming; and (5) Dominguez reflects on the complexity of the issue of educating students from Mexico in the Deming Schools--the public's attitudes, bureaucratic wrangles, and reasons for persisting despite the opposition. The second section, which comprises about three quarters of the guide, presents three critical perspectives on the video written by Mary E. Dilworth, Lisa Sparaco, and Roberta Maldonado. Each of these essays presents its author's own perspective in terms of her own experience, both personal and professional. Each essay addresses the issues, questions of professional knowledge, and suggested actions and possible consequences. (LL)
