Encouraging Students To Analyze/Articulate Their Beliefs about Cultural Diversity.
Rozema, Hazel J.
This paper offers suggestions for teaching high school and college students about cultural diversity and for providing them with multicultural educational experiences. After presenting a background and rationale for such teaching, the paper gives a list of classroom activities, including student reactions to statements regarding racism and affirmative action and a video analysis exercise. Among the suggestions are that students write down their feelings and reactions to the video, then share what they have written in a class discussion, guided by the teacher. (CR)
