New Core Offerings for this Fall
September 12, 2014
Three new CORE 585 (.5) units have been added for fall 2014.
CORE 585-01 Burned Out of Homes & History: Unearthing the Silenced Voices of the Tulsa Race Riots
This workshop will engage participants in the use of primary source documents (such as historic photographs and eyewitness accounts) to revisit the history of the Tulsa Race Riot of 1921.
Participants will write interior monologues/poems, construct templates for persuasive essays about reparations to victims and survivors, and develop a framework for classroom inquiry into the implications of “omissions” from traditional textbooks.
Wednesday, Sept. 24, 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm, South Campus Chapel
CORE 585-02 and CORE 585-03 Exploring Issues of Houselessness Through a Street Library
Participants will visit Portland’s bicycle-powered library, Street Books, a nonprofit that brings literature to people living outside. Participants will meet a longtime library patron and hear about his experiences on the street. Designed for teachers, counselors, therapists and other mental healthcare professionals, this course engages participants in a discussion about issues surrounding those who lack shelter and explores how insights into this community can inform their own teaching and counseling practices.
Saturday, Oct. 18, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm, location TBA
Saturday, Nov. 15, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm, location TBA
