Participatory Deep Learning in a Diverse Class on Minority Literatures
Mwangi, Evan
Multicultural Perspectives, v12 n2 p91-96 2010
This paper is a reflexive exploration of my teaching and evaluation techniques in a diverse class on minority literature. I explain my classroom evaluation and teaching techniques in offering an African literature course as a junior African professor trained outside the United States and teaching in a predominantly white institution. Using Paulo Freire, bell hooks, and Greg Light, Roy Cox, and Susanna Calkins, I assess my effectiveness as a student-centered teacher, pointing out my shortcomings and suggesting ways in which I will overcome these obstacles in future courses. (Contains 1 footnote.)
