4. Prepare for In-Class Quiz (RAT#1) at the Beginning of Class
Review your notes from the readings. The 5-question multiple-choice quiz will be on the Hook and Wilkerson readings.
In this session we will begin with the quiz on the readings. We will then go over course requirements, including the group norms and rules for class discussion. We will explore cultural humility and multicultural counseling competence: awareness, knowledge, and skill. We will also discuss Isabel Wilkerson's portrayal of America's 'caste' system, and how it relates to the school psychologist's work with marginalized students and their families.
Our names tell a lot about who we are and where we come from. We often have thoughts about our names and their roots and significance. Reflect on your name using the attached worksheet.
