FOCUS QUESTIONS

In what ways did the book/film illustrate some of the concepts we have been discussing in class?  How were the characters ethnic identity affected?  What cultural conflicts existed between the characters?  What types of racism were evident?  How was high-context culture illustrated?  Social Action?  Did this book give you a different point of view?  (multiple perspective).  How did the historical perspective (from a minority viewpoint impact your thinking about that group today?  Would you use this book or film (with older students)?  Why or why not?

Well-written multicultural literature& films can help us to bring diversity into the classroom.  (goal #2- cultural consciousness, insight into the different values and beliefs helps us to be more accepting of different world-views)  It can also provide insight into different communication patterns that exist among groups (goal #3-Intercultural Competence).  Often it can also provide a perspective not generally found in our textbooks  (goal #1 Multiple Historical perspectives).   As we identify with the character, we begin to combat the prejudice and discrimination they must endure (goal #4 combating racism, sexism…). Along with a multicultural curriculum, it can provide motivation for our students to get involved, to participate in activities for the common good, to take a stand when they see injustice. (goal # 6 Social Action)
