Reconstructing Curriculum

The program curriculum will consist of intensive reading, discussion, class lectures, video presentations, group presentations, and lesson plan writing.

Teachers will participate in a series of instructional modules. Each module will be contained in a special program book to be created by Dr. Omowale Akintunde for the Minnesota Humanities Center and disseminated to each of the program participants. These modules that will progress teachers through a process that will explicate how White privilege functions in American society and subsequently underscores American school curricula. The final component of this process will be curricular transformation in which the participants will demonstrate not only their understanding of these issues of critical diversity but also how to construct curriculum, lesson plans, and pedagogical techniques that demonstrate this proficiency. This process will involve a triadic process consisting of three Phases:
1. Phase 1: Unveiling the Myth: The role of epistemology in social knowledge construction
2. Phase 2: Deconstructing the Myth: Its what you know when you dont know that thats what you know
3. Phase 3: Transcending Mythology: Exposing the Hidden Narrative in Lesson Plans and Curricula
