Moriah's Top 3 Chapters from 21st Century Classrooms
I would like to focus on chapters 3, 10, and 11 in 21st Century Classrooms. Chapter 3 sounds interesting as it deals with incorporating ideas of globalization within curricula and students' reactions to these efforts. I believe this to be increasing relevant in a period in which the changes wrought by globalization impact almost every field of study. Chapter 10 interests me as it deals with decentering whiteness and patriarchy in courses which focus on race and ethnicity. Chapter 11 is interesting in that it focuses on teaching across difference, which seems to be the focus of the entire book. I am hoping that it will summarize the main points addressed in the different chapters. See you all tomorrow!
