Responding to Diversity Issues in the Classroom: A Developmental and Social Justice Approach
Friday, April 10, 2009 9:00a.m. to 12 Noon in Allen House, room 204.
This half day workshop engages participants in building an understanding of how to have meaningful conversations about diversity issues and how to confront difficult situations more effectively in the classroom context. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of both the dynamics of interpersonal conflict in general and practical responses that promote understanding and critical thinking. Using case scenarios, you will practice interpersonal skills and productive responses to interpersonal conflicts related to cultural and/or social justice.
Facilitated by Sherwood Smith, Director, Center for Cultural Pluralism and IPS faculty.
