110 Experiences for Multicultural Learning
110 Experiences for Multicultural Learning combines simulations, exercises, and structured role-playing activities that have been used in psychology classrooms and counseling training programs. These experiences will successfully—and simply—demonstrate the relevance of cultural diversity in psychological topics and bring multicultural learning to life!
Psychology instructors and multicultural trainers will find easy-to-use experiences with detailed objectives, procedures, and debriefing information plus all the handout and supplemental materials needed to carry out the experience. Additionally students will find these experiences interesting, thought-provoking, rewarding, and fun as each experience has the potential to maximize interactive learning both among culturally different persons in the classroom and with the multicultural community context outside the classroom. Four categories of experiences-brief 30-minute introductory experiences, longer one-hour experiences, two-hour laboratory and workshop-like experiences as well as homework activities—make 110 Experiences for Multicultural Learning suitable for a variety of settings and classrooms.
