EAU CLAIRE -- Race and gender as they relate to learning and literacy are the main topics of a course to be held this summer at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
Sponsored by Education Outreach, the course "Race, Gender and Learning," will explore the impacts of power, culture and politics on ethnic minorities and women while enrolled in learning institutions.
The course, which can be taken for three graduate credits, will be held from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Monday through Thursday, July 13-30.
Through the use of film, electronic text and the World Wide Web, narratives, expository and other texts, students will learn to increase awareness of the variety of learning styles represented by disparities in multicultural and gender groups.
The course will be team-taught by Dr. Helen Dale, associate professor of English, and Dr. Susan McIntyre, associate professor of curriculum and instruction. Both are professors at UW-Eau Claire who have strong backgrounds in multicultural education.
For information regarding the course or to receive a brochure, contact the Education Outreach office at (715) 846-5843.
