Teaching Note--Constructing Critical Conversations: A Model for Facilitating Classroom Dialogue for Critical Learning
Kang, Hye-Kyung; O'Neill, Peggy
Journal of Social Work Education, v54 n1 p187-193 2018
Discussions of power and privilege, oppression, and structural inequities in classrooms can produce complex understanding and critical analysis when facilitated effectively. In this article we present the critical conversations model for facilitating conversations that open up space for discussing such issues and encourage the development of critical consciousness and reflection through experiential learning. The model provides flexible scaffolding for instructors to use to navigate their way through classroom tensions and capitalize on spontaneous learning opportunities. Theoretical underpinnings of the model are explained, followed by a description of the model. Implications for social work education and next steps are discussed.
