Exploring Diversity in Our Lives and in Our Classrooms
“...Education needs to enable the student to look through window frames in order to see the reality of others, and into mirrors in order to see her/his own reality reflected.” (Emily Style). By exploring curriculum through the lens of culture, race, class, and gender in the interest of supporting language development, participants will understand how specific activities help children develop greater self-understanding, positive self-esteem, and community responsibility.
Attendance (which includes breakfast) at all three sessions: $75.00 per person.
