9781433104039: Reel Diversity (Counterpoints)

Reel Diversity: A Teachers Sourcebook is a resource manual for teachers who want to infuse the concepts of diversity and social justice into their secondary and college courses. Lecturers and workshop presenters will also appreciate this text for its practical uses. The authors present proven guidelines for teaching diversity using a framework that deconstructs national opinion and culture from both majority and minority perspectives. Emphasizing the development of a shared language among teachers and learners, the text provides a list of important definitions about difference and power. It discusses the role of the teacher in minimizing cultural dominance, prejudice, and discrimination in society. The text includes an extensive section on designing a diversity education course, and teachers will benefit from the suggested instructional activities, readings, assignments, and advice on creating a classroom atmosphere for these issues.

More than just another book on film literacy and criticism, this manual stands out from the competition for its practical, user-friendly mini-lessons using film clips from mainstream Hollywood feature films to illustrate the 25 diversity definitions provided in the text, and develops a list of questions following each clip that can be used to encourage cross-cultural dialogue.

Review:

«‘Reel Diversity: A Teacher’s Sourcebook’ is truly one of the most innovative texts for teaching about diversity and social justice to come along in many years. Using analysis and discussion of clips from popular films coupled with cleverly designed activities and exercises, ‘Reel Diversity’ will soon become a mainstay of courses and workshops on multicultural education, human relations, and workplace diversity. From ‘Legally Blonde’ to ‘The Lion King’ the authors have fashioned a major learning tool that will be sure to draw even the most reticent student into thought-provoking debate.» (William A. Howe, Consultant for Multicultural Education at the Connecticut State Department of Education and former President of the National Association for Multicultural Education (NAME))
«Never has going to the movies been such a powerful medium for infusing social justice and concepts of power/privilege into the classroom. Finally! A tool for teaching that goes beyond ‘celebrating diversity’ and moves toward creating equity and community. Johnson and Blanchard are to be lauded for their development of this volume to critically engage students in discourse on difference.» (Sue Rankin, Associate Professor of Education Policy Studies, College Student Affairs Research Associate, Center for the Study of Higher Education, The Pennsylvania State University)
«Finally, a resource that provides tangible tools for utilizing the powerful medium of film and other media to empower individuals to be active change agents in our world. ‘Reel Diversity’ is a welcome addition to the literature that will assist teachers and facilitators in developing engaging experiences for students.» (Vernon A. Wall, Director of Educational Programs & Publications, ACPA – College Student Educators International & Founding Faculty, Social Justice Training Institute)
«The power of film helps us all see ourselves in a new light while encouraging us to collectively explore issues of fairness and social justice on a new level. The practical guidance ‘Reel Diversity’ offers and provides a roadmap to diversity educators, student affairs professionals, faculty across disciplines, and student leaders on how to effectively use the concept of ‘difference’ as a starting place for true growth as it offers a comprehensive solution for initiating serious conversations about diversity at all levels of education around a media students enjoy.» (Jennifer DeCoste, Associate Vice President for Institutional Diversity Initiatives, Clarkson University)
