Feb. 27 Book Launch Party!
The College of Education is very pleased to invite all students, faculty, and alumni to a book launch party in honor of the publication of Salsa Dancing in Gym Shoes: Exploring Cross-Cultural Missteps With Latinos in the Classroom.
Tammy Oberg De La Garza and Alyson Lavigne are assistant professors in the College of Education, and are the co-authors of this new book which explores how something as simple as “hello” can consistently create culture gaps, and how teachers can take meaningful steps to reverse the harmful patterns created by miscommunication and lack of empathy for culture differences.
The celebration will be held on Friday, February 27th at 6:30 p.m. at Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center, 4046 West Armitage Ave. in Chicago. All are welcome, and reservations are not required.
Bring a colleague or friend, and join the celebration!
