Talking Back: Shifting the Discourse of Deficit to a Pedagogy of Cultural Wealth of International Instructors in US Classrooms
Yep, Gust A.
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n138 p83-91 Sum 2014
Using a combination of critical theory, poststructuralism, and critical pedagogy, this chapter calls for a shift in the ways we conceive, imagine, and represent international instructors in US classrooms. More specifically, it highlights the importance of the voices of international instructors themselves, proposes a shift from the current discourse of deficit to one of cultural wealth, and offers some directions for future research in this area.
