Post a 500 word interview (remember no real names or other information that could identify your interviewee). Read and comment thoughtfully and respectfully on two of your classmates postings, including anything new you learned from reading their postings.
For this assignment you are to interview a linguistically and ethnically/culturally diverse adult (18 or older and someone from a different ethnic group than your own) in terms of his or her school experiences and perspectives. I suggest a first paragraph giving some information about who you interviewed including some information about their ethnicity, education level and work experience of their family (don’t use their real name or any personal details that could identify that person), then the results of the interview in essay format (not in question & answer format) and a concluding paragraph on how a teacher might have helped this person or one like him or her when in school. Some questions that can be asked are: did the person experience racism/prejudice in or out of school? Did any of their teachers particularly stand out in their memory and why? Did the schools curriculum/textbooks reflect their cultural/ethnic background? Were some of their classes tracked? Did they receive any multicultural education? Was their education more what Paulo Freire calls the ?banking method? or was it more ?transformational?? (Up to 20 points possible)
