A Grassroots Approach to Formulating a Multicultural, Interdisciplinary Core Curriculum.
Carrier, Henry N.; Williams, Donald A.
This paper reports on the study at Brevard Community College in Florida to discover how faculty and students can learn from each other. By examining the diverse elements of the college population and making the findings widely available, the disparate liberal arts courses and the diversity of participating faculty and students can become mutually enriching. The goal is to get students to discover America by using a problem-posing pedagogy that is based on a dialogue between students and faculty, and on collaboration in which the crucial issues of the time are set forth and exposed. Students are encouraged to question possibilities and make choices in order to participate in a community of scholars. The student survey with results, and the memo to faculty soliciting contributions, and sample faculty contributions are included. Contains a 55-item bibliography. (Author/EH)
