Course Overview
UW-Green Bay Course Objectives:
To provide and INTERDISCIPLINARY perspective by addressing problems and discussing issues of different racial, ethnic and cultural groups. To develop COMMUNICATION skills, with emphasis in writing, to effectively connect research to possible strategies for teaching with cultural competence. To promote INFORMATION LITERACY via writing and independent studying, so that you have a better understanding of how information is collected, can assess the quality of the information and its sources, and can use the information you gather effectively. Cultural Images and World Culture Course

This seminar satisfies both the Cultural Images and World Culture requirement for the General Education program. To that end, we will work to develop an understanding of the beliefs, values, and ways of life in various countries in order to engage comfortably in cross cultural settings and interact harmoniously with people from cultures other than the United States. Included in the development of cultural competency is the ongoing attainment of authentic multicultural materials. We will identify strategies that provide for more evenhanded learning opportunities through literature, music, and other educational resource from diverse cultures as we continuously develop our ability to provide a welcoming atmosphere that physically reflects the diverse cultures, interests, and experiences of those we will encounter in future professional and personal interactions.
