Diversity Education at a Predominately White Catholic College
Alexandrin, Julie R.; French, James Joss; DeLeon, Wanda
Multicultural Perspectives, v10 n2 p94-99 Apr 2008
This article discussed the successes that have occurred in a graduate and an undergraduate course in diversity education and English language acquisition at a small, predominantly white college. The activities and assignments that are discussed in this article have been refined by the four professors who teach the courses to enable candidates to examine their own biases and the power they have as teachers in a classroom. In addition, the assignments and activities educate and begin to provide candidates with the tools to address cultural capital and how to work with families and students who have different beliefs than themselves.
