Engaging Undergraduates in Feminist Classrooms: An Exploration of Professors' Practices
Spencer, Leland G.
Equity & Excellence in Education, v48 n2 p195-211 2015
This article reports the results of a feminist action research project that sought to ascertain professors' best practices for engaging undergraduates in feminist classrooms. In semi-structured interviews, professors recommended assigning readings from a variety of positionalities; creating a safe space for class discussion; relying on data to respond to student resistance; and including issues related to diversity, human identity, and social justice at a curricular level. The article concludes with a discussion of the author's experience implementing this advice in his own teaching for two years.
