Drawing on Dynamic Local Knowledge through Student-Generated Photography
Coles-Ritchie, Marilee; Monson, Bayley; Moses, Catherine
Equity & Excellence in Education, v48 n2 p266-282 2015
In this research, the authors explored how teachers using student-generated photography draw on local knowledge. The study draws on the framework of funds of knowledge to highlight the assets marginalized students bring to the classroom and the need for culturally relevant pedagogy to address the needs of a diverse public school population. The purpose of this study was to understand how teachers were using student generated photography to connect students' dynamic local knowledge with curriculum and classroom practices. Through the methodology of critical qualitative teacher action research in two unique classroom sites, the authors' findings include increased student responsibility and ownership; teachers as learners; and the richness and complexity of the students' lived experiences.
