Fostering the Exchange of Ideas about Diversity in the Higher Education Classroom
A solution to the problem of preparing teacher education students to develop curricula that focus on multiculturalism is to help them develop the ability to infuse multicultural children's literature and young adult literature into the elementary and secondary school curriculum. Teacher educators must do more than expose their pre-service and in-service teachers to multicultural literature: they must structure their classes so that students see their own and other cultures present in the classroom. A course entitled "Models of Teaching: A Cross-Discipline Integrative Seminar" at Marywood University Graduate School of Arts and Sciences is designed to explore diversity and link it to the creation and implementation of curriculum in the higher education classroom. It uses free-writes and case studies to help the students address potentially emotionally charged topics such as diversity. (NKA)
