A Brief Look at How Feminist Pedagogy Interrelates with Invitational Education and Cooperative Learning.
Jacobs, George M.; Ilola, Lisa Marie
In the literature of feminist pedagogy, four interconnected strands emerge: (1) horizontal, rather than vertical classroom structure; (2) inclusion of the subjective, not just the objective; (3) the importance of context; and (4) a need to overcome the oppression that females face. Each of these strands is discussed in this paper, and connections with invitational education and cooperative learning are explored. Similarities between these three perspectives on education exist, including similar implementation problems. Resistance from teachers and students may be among these problems. In addition to cooperative learning and invitational education, other perspectives on education may be compatible with feminist pedagogy. Feminist pedagogy helps educators to see problems, such as hierarchical classrooms, a ban on the subjective, and a lack of context, from a fresh perspective. Thirty references are included in the bibliography. (IAH)
