Gaining Interpretive Competence through Cross-Cultural Dialogue among Teachers and Researchers
Boone, Michelle; Chan, Elaine
McGill Journal of Education, v40 n1 p95-108 Win 2005
We examined the complexities of developing and implementing school curricula that reflect the goals for equality for students outlined in the Canadian Multiculturalism Act. Stories of teaching and learning experiences were presented to teacher-researchers as a means of generating discussion about differences in perspective pertaining to the curricular needs of an ethnically diverse student population. We articulate this ongoing inquiry about how best to meet the needs of a diverse society in terms of enhancing a sense of "interpretive competence" (Conle, 1997b, Conle et al., 2000, Conle, 2000).
