Affirming Diversity Through Democratic Conversations



Affirming Diversity Through Democratic Conversations by Victoria R. Fu, Andrew J. Stremmel

Intended for students and practitioners in advanced undergraduate and graduate courses on diversity, this collection of essays and personal reflections is written from a social constructivist perspective that those in schools of education, counseling, children and family studies, and social work will find particularly relevant. The authors propose practices that promote democratic conversations regarding diversity by creating opportunities to share personal stories and to listen to other people's stories. They examine policies and practices that can either empower or stifle understanding in different situations. Finally, they present stories to serve as catalysts to promote democratic conversations and multicultural understanding in various contexts.

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
