Opening the Discussion through Challenging Companion Meanings and Pedagogical Approaches That De-Center
Rosser, Sue V.
Cultural Studies of Science Education, v9 n2 p433-439 Jun 2014
Many aspects of the paper "What if we were in a test tube?: students' gendered meaning making during a biology lesson about the basic facts of the human genitals" intrigue and warrant further exploration. This forum will focus on two particular areas: (1) An expansion of the companion meanings by examining how they resonate with themes forwarded by other feminist scholars who critiqued biology and reproduction. (2) A proposal of some pedagogical approaches that might provide solutions to de-center the prioritization of heterosexual male genitals and of facts over complexities in science.
