Your topics area are important yet go in many directions. In class, we will work to develop specific questions about these topics and try to find pivotal overlaps or places that resonate with you and the current times.
Thank you, Karen! I’ve developed some questions but I’m not sure whether they are specific or not. For example,
What are the differences between Comparative-international Education and Community-based Education?
How is Multicultural Art Education different from Global Education?
What are the definitions of Creativity?
How to teach creatively?
How to teach students to be creative?
… … ..
Yes, let’s discuss them in class.
After reading your interview essay, I suggest you look to postcolonial theories and critical race theories (see PSU group in the grad website at http://www.personal.psu.edu/ktk2/blogs/aed_grads/groups.html).
