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

Bowie Plays a Dead God
By Robin Babb
If there’s anything predictable in this chaotic world we live in, it’s that, given the chance, David Bowie will do something very strange. Bowie upheld this truism a couple weeks ago when he released the music video for “Blackstar,” the first track we’ve heard of his upcoming album, also titled Blackstar).

Podcast Recommendation: Lore
"Lore" aims for the heart of the world's creepiest folklore
The soft voice of Aaron Mahnke may strike the listeners of his podcast, Lore, as oddly disconcerting. Whether Mahnke is discussing axe-weilding murders in the deep south or the creeping monsters of New England's coastline, what is a mainstay of the broadcast is the question, "what is the implication of this story?"
Listen to a few episodes in anticipation of Halloween, but as Mahnke himself tweeted earlier this week, "Let’s remember: 'Lore' isn’t a 'scary story' podcast. It’s a narrative history podcast about the roots of common superstition & folklore." There's much more to these stories than a thrill; they offer a creative exploration of history lived by everyday people, whose lives were touched by traditions and beliefs with mysterious origins and powerful implications.
Listen to Lore here.
