Educators Learning Through Collaborative Writing: Critical narratives about intercultural communication in the classroom
Education policy; Elementary education
Major: Elementary and Special Education
Faculty Mentor: Dr. Laura Boynton Hauerwas, Elementary and Special Education
One central goal of global education is to be able to communicate and build relationships within and across communities around the world. Kristina Copelas participated with two PC alumni in a biweekly community of practice which was established out of happenstance during COVID. Together through collaborative writing (Speedy, 2012) and narrative inquiry (Dauite, 2016), the team explored how their personal intercultural experiences have fostered their growth as cultural and linguistically responsive global educators. Three ethnographic vignettes emerged that capture the critical dialogues of the community of practice.
