The Challenges of a "Multicultural" Classroom: Some Reflections
The author reflects on small group work in classes and common challenges encountered in terms of "differences" and "power." She suggests that these challenges may be a product of state multiculturalism discourse and resultant identities. Another dimension of social experience, disability, is also touched on.
L'auteure é met une ré flexion sur le travail en petits groupes dans les salles de classe, ainsi que les défis auxquels elle fait face en ce qui a trait aux "différences" et au "pouvoir". Elle suggère que ces défis sont peut-être le produit d'un discours sur l'état du multiculturalisme et des identités qui en découlent. On aborde aussi une autre dimension portant sur l'expérience sociale et l'invalidité.
