Teaching about Diversity in Black and White: Reflections and Recommendations from Two Teacher Educators
Jett, Christopher C.; Cross, Stephanie Behm
New Educator, v12 n2 p131-146 2016
In this article, two teacher educators reflect on their experiences teaching a diversity course for preservice middle-school teachers. The first author is an African American male teacher educator, and the second author is a White female teacher educator. While the authors bring distinct experiences, backgrounds, and epistemologies to this work, both seek to prepare preservice teachers with the skills and dispositions needed to meet the needs of culturally diverse students. Including their narratives in their own words, the authors share their experiences teaching this course and make recommendations for those doing this work in their respective spaces.
