The Limits and Potential of Dialogue to counter Polarization in Educative Settings
The November coffee hour will be devoted the time topic of polarization in society and its manifestations in the context of formal classroom education. At a time when a member of our Supreme Court has declared that he does not understand the meaning of diversity it is vital that developmentalists and educators confront the polarization that is an existential threat to our communities and our species itself. The chapter that Mariette has provided is based upon intensive research in a pretty large scale study of the difficulties encountered by Dutch High School Students and their teachers as they sought to implement polarization reduction activities for their diverse student bodies.
“The chapter’s ambition is to provide the conditions and conceptual underpinning for using dialogical models to design interventions in educational settings that are characterized by polarized relationships, and opposing ethnic, religious and/or social class affiliations.” To sign up, please email me at email@example.com .
