"Testimonialista" Pedagogues: "Testimonio" Pedagogy in Critical Multicultural Education
El Ashmawi, Yvonne Pilar; Sanchez, Ma. Eugenia Hernandez; Carmona, Judith Flores
International Journal of Multicultural Education, v20 n1 p67-85 2018
Teacher educators employ a variety of approaches to multicultural education. This article describes how we have our students grapple with their positionalities, to socially locate themselves and then to question the how and why of what they learned by employing "testimonio," a genre of qualitative research that has its epistemological roots in Chicana feminist thought, as pedagogy. We discuss how we use "testimonio" in our classes and how students can use the process of creating and sharing their "testimonios" to cultivate a multicultural education (MCE) perspective and begin crafting their own culturally relevant pedagogy.
