J760: Genres of Research and Practice in Multicultural Education
June 16-June 30, M-F, 1-4:30 PM
Instructor: Christine Bennett, bennettc@indiana.edu

Course Description: This course develops a conceptual framework of
twelve genres of research and practice in multicultural education.
The genres illustrate the complex multidisciplinary roots of
multicultural education, illustrate the depth and breadth of
scholarly inquiry in the field, provide a lens for viewing areas of
emphasis and neglect, and underscore hopeful possibilities for
practice.  Research and practice related to student achievement and
ethnic identity development will be the focus this summer.  The
class will emphasize collaborative group discussions and analysis of
the genres through narratives, selected research reviews and
reports, contemporary film, and ethnography.  In addition, each
member of the class will develop a mini-proposal for inquiry and/or
practice, or an annotated bibliography that is guided by one of the
twelve genres as well as personal professional interests and goals.
