TERI on Twitter
Teacher Education Redesign (TERI) at the University of Minnesota College of Education and Human Development
[Note added December 1, 2009
Evidently, Matthew has declined my request for a discussion about #TERI on UThink:
wbgleason Earlier invited @mathewcw to discuss #TERI on UThink http://bit.ly/8dZ7pQ Declined: http://bit.ly/5VnIW3 (comment 29) Molotov cocktail kinda guy?
Added Dec. 2: The Chronicle has just put up a fairly even-handed discussion of the #TERI matter. I've put some of it up and invite those who are actually interested in a discussion rather than name calling to comment there.
Added December 10: Matthew has wisely decided to go underground..
wbgleason Want to flame on in protected mode? Here's how to do it - @matthewcw All for discussion? Why not allow comments on blog? #TERI]_________________
wbgleason @matthewcw "Much more worth discussing, glad for opportunity." http://bit.ly/8dZ7pQ Or would you rather continue sniping? #TERI #UMN
matthewcw "Preparing teachers to work with diverse learning populations" (http://bit.ly/86ILDs ) Key concept and problem #TERI tries understand. #UMN
wbgleason RT @matthewcw Jean Quam, Dean of CEHD calmly responds to #TERI issue: http://bit.ly/86ILDs . See comments: Dear Dean Quam, #UMN #Minnesota
wbgleason RT @matthewcw Core of #TERI issue: those who believe "Truth" is indepen of race & those who know otherwise}Believe vs. know? How fairminded
matthewcw Jean Quam, Dean of CEHD calmly responds to #TERI issue: http://bit.ly/86ILDs . Much more worth discussing, glad for opportunity. #UMN
matthewcw Core of #TERI issue = 2 incommensurable systems of knowledge: those who believe "Truth" is independent of race & those who know otherwise.
wbgleason RT @JoannaOC @wbgleason Jean Quam's response to KKersten's was a reasonable refutation to the FIRE #TERI Don't agree - disposition business?
JoannaOC @wbgleason I though Jean Quam's response to KKersten's column in the Strib was a reasonble refutation to the FIRE fear-mongering. #TERI
wbgleason RT @matthewcw Can racist teachers be effective teachers in 2009? Apparently so}Is this rhetoric any different from tparty/thall shout? #TERI
wbgleason Once again we find ourselves at #UMN in a situation that leaves us open to national ridicule ... http://bit.ly/z6VpS #TERI #Minnesota
matthewcw The #TERI proposals are starting points for discussion. Sad / unfortunate to see adults acting like the tea-party / town hall shouters #UMN
matthewcw “The problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color-line.” - Du Bois. Race, whiteness, privilege STILL difficult topics #TERI
matthewcw We know how #TERI will be attacked; we've seen this play before from the right wing. Misrepresentation and fear are their tactics. #UMN
wbgleason RT @matthewcw #TERI @ #UMN is merely a proxy, a ... space to express a fear of diversity. }Unsupported assertion & you actually teach here?
wbgleason RT @matthewcw Media outlets fanning fear over #TERI usually have conservative / neo-con ads. #UMN FIRE? It's conservative => it's wrong?
wbgleason RT @matthewcw Let's be honest about the "outrage" over #TERI @ #UMN. This is about race and racism. }So anyone who disagrees is dishonest?
matthewcw At the end of 2009, #TERI is the new #ACORN. Like ACORN, #TERI @ #UMN is merely a proxy, a discursive space to express a fear of diversity.
matthewcw But let's be honest about the "outrage" over #TERI @ #UMN. This is about race and racism in America. Let's not hide from that discussion.
matthewcw Careful readers will quickly note "media" outlets fanning fear over #TERI usually also have conservative / neo-con ads on them.

matthewcw How strange it is that the academic "left" sounds more like right wing talk radio when it comes to defending their own privilege #TERI #UMN
