Event Title

Building Social Justice Awareness Through the Curriculum: Teaching a Crash Course in Disability Studies

Description

This session will highlight my experience teaching a sophomore seminar course about the rhetoric of disability. Each seminar had to have a focus in multiculturalism in the United States, and many of the established courses focused on issues of race, gender, ethnic, and religious identity. Mine was the first course in the offerings that treated ability level as a component of multiculturalism or diversity. I will discuss the structure of the course, explain course readings and student activities and assignments. I will also provide some feedback that I received from students. After the presentation about the details of the course, I would enjoy hearing feedback and questions from disability services professionals of all levels.
