We will examine the forces that move, and restrain the movement, of populations, with particular emphasis to the historical, political, economic, and other causes that led to the immense diversity we find in our classrooms today. Richard Haass’s book The World: A Brief Introduction is required reading for this class.

In the first two sessions of this three-session master class, teachers will learn from the master. In the third, teachers will have a rare opportunity to exchange ideas with their brilliant colleagues.
