Being "Chill" with Teachers and "Frozen" by Peers in Science: Overcoming Social and Educational Barriers in a Learning Community
Kim, Hannah; Scantlebury, Kathryn
Cultural Studies of Science Education, v8 n3 p673-682 Sep 2013
This forum discusses the issue of "othering" and how intersectionality is a useful analytical framework for understanding the students' immigrant experiences in, and out of, the science classroom. We use a feminist perspective to discuss Minjung's study because gender is a key aspect of one's identity other aspects such as race, religion, socio-economic status, and age have assumed a significant status in gender studies. Lastly we examine the supports and barriers that cliques can produce and propose the importance of building a learning community in the science classroom to engage all students.
