Just because it's not happening to your kids doesn't mean it's not happening.

Which Vice Presidential candidate has been described as a “human sweater vest?” Test your knowledge.

Hurricane Matthew swept through Cuba and has been ranked as the strongest hurricane in 52 years, hitting Haiti with powerful 145 mph winds. Floridians are on high alert, as Matthew is expected to make its way up the Southeastern coast toward the Mid-Atlantic.

Spunky 91-year-old Norma Bauerschmidt of Michigan died a full and happy woman, after deciding against cancer treatment and living a very full life instead, complete with her first hot air balloon ride, visits to National Parks and her first pedicure.

Women in Poland crowded the city's streets for “Black Monday” in protest of a proposed absolute ban on abortion that would put women and their doctors in jail for up to five years no matter the circumstance of the abortion. Miscarriages would also result in three years jail time if the woman could not prove it was not induced.

Even at eight-years-old, kids are already socially conditioned to sexism and racism. One teacher tackles stereotypes in her classroom and takes a step towards shaping socially aware adults in her third-grade classroom.

A new study gives insight into treating anxiety disorders. Scientists determine that the key isn't simply lowering cortisol levels in the brain, it's lowering them in particular areas of the brain.

NASA always seems to be working on something mind-blowing and certainly larger than life. These days, it's a mission for a spacecraft called Osiris-Rex. Ever wondered what ingredients were involved in the making of the solar system? This spacecraft aims to follow a 500 meter, carbon-rich asteroid holding the answers.

Coffee is an essential component in many Americans' lives, but how much do you think about the origin of your precious roast? Not to put a damper on your beautiful, caffeinated morning but you can most likely thank slave labor for that latte.

There was a progressive victory in Las Cruces even in the face of 50 to 1 spending from the opposition.

The Lt. Gov. takes to facebook to share in the incendiary rhetoric revolving around UNM Health Sciences Center's relationship with Soutwestern Women's Options.

A popular Taos teacher is leaving education citing Martinez and Skandera's teacher evaluation polices.

There's lots of toxic crap on the shelves at dollar stores. That may at least partially explain the weird smell made by my wine glass shaped sippy-cup.

Teaching Across Cultural Strengths

Press Release [ Tue Apr 5 2016 1:00 PM ]

UNM Associate Professor Alicia Chávez will be at the UNM Bookstore on Thursday, April 7, at 12pm to sign copies of Teaching Across Cultural Strengths (Stylus, 2016).

In Teaching Across Cultural Strengths, Chávez suggests that an imbalance in the teaching and learning situation exists when the teacher teaches from one cultural perspective and the student's primary learning experiences come from another cultural perspective. To enhance the possibility that the student will master the learning situation and achieve its deep objectives, it is important that college teachers expand their cultural reach and include multicultural perspectives in the teaching and learning situations. Teaching Across Cultural
Strengths offers a comprehensive set of guidelines based on a sound theoretical foundation, and empirical research that will enable college teachers to narrow the gap in cross cultural teaching and student learning.

Alicia Chávez is an Associate Professor in Educational Leadership and Policy at UNM. She has served as collegiate leader, student affairs professional, and faculty member in universities around the country. Chávez has also co-authored several books on culture and college teaching, including Web Based Teaching Across Culture and Age (Springer, 2013).

The UNM Bookstore is located at 2301 Central Ave. NE at the intersection of Cornell and Central.
