Making Sense of White Identity Development: The Implications for Teacher Education
Rieger, Alicja
Multicultural Learning and Teaching, v10 n2 p211-230 Sep 2015
This article discusses an individualized narrative on a contribution that a White educator can add to the field of teacher education, in particular multicultural teacher education. Through sharing my individual life experiences with a process of moving from an invisible Whiteness (Clark & O'Donnell, 1999; Giroux, 1997; Helms, 1992) toward more advanced levels of multiracial and multicultural awareness, followed by a review of a theoretical model of Helms' (1992) White Racial Identity Theory, I provide a space and a structured forum for engaging in a dialogue on the complex issues of race and Whiteness among teacher candidates.
