Narrative History in the College Classroom: Re-Contextualizing Multicultural Issues through Close Re-Reading of Juvenile Literature
Klein, Ana Maria
Multicultural Education, v12 n2 p51-54 Win 2004
In this article, the author brings to the foreground the most difficult of all teaching tasks--raising awareness. The author teaches cultural and linguistic diversity and hopes to instill a measure of tolerance in her students. She uses the Narrative Inquiry format to help uncover the many layers that surround discriminatory practices, and she urges her students to explore "self" and "other" in great depth throughout the college semester. During the course of fourteen weeks, they explore personal accounts: their own written and oral narratives, and those of their community. Their aim is to learn more about themselves as they listen to others. (Contains 1 note.)
