Advanced Study in Multicultural Education

Submitted By Diane Daniel

A four unit Teacher Education graduate course will be offered by the Department of Ethnic Studies in the Summer Quarter of 2009. The seminar is partially funded by California State University (CSU) East Bay alumnus, Allen Warren. Cost is therefore minimal at $160 instead of $660. The course will function both as an accelerated study in multicultural education, and as an incentive/tool for teachers to progress towards the 16 unit requirement for an increase in salary.

The objective of the seminar is to provide East Bay urban teachers with the requisite pedagogical and research skills that they need, to incorporate more materials about American racial and ethnic groups in their classrooms. It will be organized and facilitated by Dr. Barbara Paige. Most of the current Ethnic Studies teaching faculty will also participate in the seminar. Participating teachers will be exposed to a broad range of disciplinary and cultural perspectives.

The structure of the seminar will be hybrid, consisting of 30 hours in class and 10 hours online. An online portion of the course will be devoted to assignments and discussions that establish a foundation for continuing and collaborative dialogues between seminar participants and the Ethnic Studies faculty. Space is limited to 15 students. Sign up today! To register visit go to "Course Catalog" under "Courses", click on "Teacher Education" and select "Advanced Study in Multicultural Education.".
