Sidonia Alenuma-Nimoh at the 2010 20th NAME Anniversary Conference

Posted on November 12th, 2010 by

Sidonia Alenuma-Nimoh just got back from the 20th Anniversary of National Association for Multicultural Education (NAME), held in Las Vegas from November 3 to 7, 2010. She presented on the topic: “Is There a Way of Teaching for Social Justice: A Multiculturalist Perspective.” The presentation began with operational definitions of social justice and multicultural education to set the stage for discussing specific strategies of teaching for social justice. It is argued that true multicultural education embodies social justice as a major component and therefore, multicultural education is an indispensable tool in teaching for social justice. There was great attendance and discussion at the session, which lasted for one hour.
