Sp-2011 COURSE DESCRIPTION AGR 201 “Communicating Across Cultures” provides an opportunity for students to understand their place and others in a multicultural, multiethnic, multinational country, the United States. It is designed to present an academic overview of the field of multicultural education as it evolved to this day. The course offers a basic review of the great variety of differences that exist within all human beings. Because the variety among individuals is endless, we can not study all differences, but will study a sampling such as race/ethnicity, gender identity, age, social class, disability, learning styles, and religion/spiritual orientation. Issues of poverty, language, and social justice may also be examined in relationship to the above major areas of emphasis. The course consists of two weekly fifty-minute lectures and a weekly hour and fifty minute lab/recitation session. Specific topics are introduced each week during the lecture and reinforced during the lab/recitation session within the same week. Lab/recitation sessions are co-facilitated by faculty. The following tools will be used to assist student learning: Guest lecturers, web-based curriculum including exercises, discussion, computer searches, demonstrations, simulations, readings, and tests. The lab/recitation sessions will engage students in guided learning experiences and then provide an opportunity to reflect upon (“process”) that experience, noting personal connections and relating it to topics previously discussed. This sequence may also include a progression from individual reflection to dialogue in pairs, to smaller or larger group conversations, all while utilizing intentionally sequenced questions to structure reflection upon what was observed or learned.
