Discussions should promote critical thinking, varied perspectives and questioning, but always in a safe and caring community where everyone is valued and respected. The author of our other textbook (Nieto) encourages students as agents for social change through collaboration, defining students as teachers, and defining the process of teaching and learning as a process for both student and instructor. </li></ul>
  4. 4. GROUP READING FACILITATION DECULTURALIZATION AND THE STRUGGLE FOR EQUALITY <ul><li>Select a chapter of interest to you and others in class. Please plan/discuss your presentation, discussions, ideas, and/or activities with you group prior to your presentation. Use a variety of strategies to promote learning such as questioning techniques, simulations/role play, mini-lecture/presentation followed by group activities, cooperative learning, visual & performing arts, or multimedia/technology, etc. Each group will bring a one-page handout for your peers . This can either be interactive, where the students fill in the new information, or a well-crafted organizer that summarizes the chapter. We will compile a list of chapters, presenters and type of discussion/activity, so we don’t duplicate efforts and keep the interest of the class. We will also dedicate part of one of our class sessions to work with your group in class with my technical assistance. As part of your professional disposition grade for the class, you are expected to attend and actively participate. Please, bring your textbook, notes, and resources in order to use class time effectively. </li></ul>
