Dialogues on Diversity 20011
Dialogues on Diversity is a one-semester .5 credit class that provides the opportunity to increase open conversation on controversial topics, bridge gaps in our community, provide leadership/communication skills, and, most importantly, create change for a stronger future. Students will have the chance to share opinions, collect information from others, and eventually, change themselves and their surroundings. Students will participate in group dialogues, supplemented with directed readings. There will also be opportunities for community service and action projects. As students prepare to head off to colleges and universities or begin careers, our hope is that students will act as change agents wherever they go and begin to bridge the gap between race and ethnicity in schools and communities.
