Education. CUNY Panel: Rethinking the Disciplines. Women in the Curriculum Series.
Grant, Carl A.; Kinsler, Kimberly; Morales-Nadal, Milgra; Tittle, Carol Kehr
This collection of four essays examines the ways in which education, as a discipline, currently reflects ongoing scholarship on gender, race, ethnicity, social class, and sexual orientation. In "Teacher Education and Multicultural Education: Research, Students, and Teaching" Carl A. Grant notes that while a growing number of universities are offering multicultural education courses, the inclusion of multicultural education in the total teacher education program structure is met with resistance at both the student and faculty level. In "Taking Teachers' Blinders Off: A Short History of the Politics of Teacher Education," Kimberly Kinsler examines the evolution of teacher education and how it is influenced by the power politics of various interest groups. In "Education: Rethinking the Discipline for Race, Class, Gender, and Ethnicity," Milgra Morales-Nadal reviews changes in texts over the last several decades and the integration of new scholarship into the teacher education curriculum. In "Testing, Scholarship, and the Curriculum," Carol Kehr Tittle reviews the research on testing, test bias, and the effects of testing on teacher education. Each essay contains references. (MDM)
