High school students can learn to see the world through the eyes of indigenous people and other nations. Two Portland teachers, Julie O'Neill and Tim Swinehart, explain how role playing in the classroom can help young people achieve a broader perspective on global issues. Julie and Tim will be presenting a workshop at the 3rd Annual Northwest Conference on Teaching for Social Justice this Saturday, October 2 at Madison Highschool.
The conversation doesn't end when the program does. You can join in additional discussion of the week's issue on our blog at kboo.fm/voicesfromtheedge (click on the "blog" tab). You'll find additional information, important links, comments from other listeners and commentary from Jo Ann and Dave. Have a question for our guests, but can't call in during the program? Post your questions on line so we can make them a part of the Voices discussion.
