Linda Hughes, Kathryn Gray-White

We often ask our students to understand and embrace the cultures of others, but how well do they understand their own? Dr. Kathryn Gray-White, professor of history, and Dr. Linda Hughes, professor of teacher preparation, use activities in their classes to help students explore their own backgrounds and beliefs. In this session we will explore one such activity to give participants the experience of exploration and connection to others. Invariably, students are surprised by what they learn from their own family elders or from others in their stead, and they are amazed to discover the connections they uncover with others in the class. What connections might be made in this session? Join us to find out.
