Readings & Resources

Our learning material will primarily consist of articles and book chapters. As per our discussions I’ll add some videos (YouTubes and TED videos). A quick read and the book that will set the stage for understanding Social Construction is:

Gergen, K. & Gergen, M. (2004). Social Construction: Entering the Dialogue. Chagrin Falls, OH: Taos Institute Publications. Order from http://www.taosinstitute.net/focus-book-series#social

Below you will find the readings and a video per Unit. All the readings/media will be made available to you  either via email or can be downloaded by clicking on the available links below. Email me should you have any problems with the downloads.
