Reading Other Voices
This Northwest Writing Institute course will bring together graduate students and educators and counselors from the community to find ways to incorporate culturally sensitive texts in their work.

We will draw from a variety of texts that address differences in race and culture such as Pam Munoz Ryan’s Esperanza Rising, Sandra Cisneros’s Woman Hollering Creek, Khaled Hosseini’s The Kite Runner, Sherman Alexie’s Ten Little Indians.

We will write from our own cultural backgrounds to uncover how our worldview shapes the reading of works made unfamiliar by different notions of self and community, time, religious and social values. Reading and writing together, we will experience the richness and multiple dimensions of language itself.

Northwest Writing Institute (NWI) classes are offered to teachers, counselors, parents, veterans, and all community members interested in the power of stories to help us understand and practice human connections for the good of all.
Irregular classes scheduled starting 7/6/2013 and ending 7/7/2013 at 9:00AM
Participants: 1 $250.00 ea.
