Tuesday, April 27, I am going to introduce http://yforum.com It is a discussion forum where you are encouraged to ask almost anything relating to diversity. I will act as secretary/moderator if you like. Hopefully, some (all?) of you will sign up on your own, and be able to discuss topics independently. You can do this outside the classroom if you prefer. Contentious issues can be discussed at http://yforum.com
Apparently you can choose how much screening you want. Or if you are not easily offended, you can just jump in with no screening.
This may not be "your thing." If you prefer, you can use approx. 1 hour 30 min. to explore any diversity topics in any websites or other medium. Here are other possible suggested links:
Video links or book links

Whatever you do with the classtime, send me a descriptive email, telling what you did, what you learned, and some reaction (opinions). Would you please include "Div. assignment 4/27" in your subject line. Please send the descriptive reaction emails by Wed. PM, April 28. Since you are given much latitude to pursue topics of interest to you, I hope this will be a rewarding experience.

Here is a great link, but I think it takes about a week to get signed up (so it is probably not the best for this assignment): World of Diversity Penn State University-DuBois, a virtual community: chats, photos, etc.

April 22 assignment: Youtube Economic Diversity: Ruby Payne, Culture of Poverty 7 min.
then follow the directions below for this topic: Discuss Economic Diversity: Ruby Payne, Culture of Poverty
Possible online resources include: 1. Framework for Understanding Poverty, A - WikEd http://wik.ed.uiuc.edu/index.php/Framework_for_Understanding_Poverty,_A
2. Education World� : School Issues and Education News: Wire Side ... http://www.educationworld.com/a_issues/chat/chat119.shtml
3. Cycle of poverty - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cycle_of_poverty

April 15 assignment:Watch Authors@Google: Daniel Goleman http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hoo_dIOP8k Emotional Intelligence, 56 min. You can watch in the classroom, or on your own.
Then go to the Discussion Board: Emotional Intelligence, Daniel Goleman http://www.quicktopic.com/44/H/ZF4PbYyM9hR3e
Summarize at least 3 main points. And then explain why you agree or disagree with those points.
I would also encourage you to interact with your classmates: ask questions, or ask them to clarify a point. With which of their points do you agree or disagree. Why?
This assignment will be worth a maximum 10 points. I get an email when there is a new posting on the discussion board, but not when you edit a comment. So if you edit your discussion posting, please email me so I won't miss it.
I'm guessing you can get this done during the class time. If you cannot post before Wednesday, April 21, please email me.

Discuss, "The World is Flat":

"Back in 2000, Tom Friedman recounts, the world began to shrink and flatten, under the influence of digital interconnectivity. Elaborating on his World is Flat thesis, Friedman describes how this new global order puts creative, entrepreneurial individuals in the driver�s seat, and poses distinct new challenges and opportunities. The digital platform that connects Bangalore, Boston and Beijing enables users from any of these places to �plug, play, compete, connect and collaborate,� and is changing everything, says Friedman. He lists some basics to keep in mind: Whatever can be done, will be done, �and the only question left is will it be done by you or to you.� Friedman describes a Budapest limo driver who asked him to refer friends traveling to Hungary to use his service -- as detailed in a website in Magyar, with English and German translations. And there�s the Sioux City- Winnebago Indian network, exporting construction tools to Kuwait. In our new era, individuals are limited only by their imaginations, so how well universities and schools enable and inspire students will determine who wins in global competition. Innovation, believes Friedman, will come from �having two or more specialties,� from those people able to connect the dots and mash them together. But the U.S. has a real problem: We�ve �kind of lost our groove since 9/11,� and may end up ceding the global competition to China unless we get our act together, believes Friedman. We �cannot go on being as dumb as we want to be, and right now that is the motto of the U.S. Congress.� We have tons of natural attributes in this country we should be leveraging, he says. A bigger problem still is that three billion new players are streaming into this newly flat world, seeking their own version of the American dream, with cars, toasters, and microwaves. �If we don�t find a cleaner, more non-emitting way to power their dreams, we�re going to burn up, choke up, heat up and smoke up this planet so much faster than even Al Gore predicts.� Friedman scoffs at those who claim �a green revolution is going on,� calling it instead a green party, entailing no real sacrifice or pain. He says the only hope will be a �disruptive breakthrough� that brings a completely different mix of standards and taxes.� Friedman�s new mantra is, �Change your leaders, not your light bulbs.� Without new leaders to rewrite our laws and trigger the innovations, �we are cooked.�
