Pedagogy and Foreignness
Jang, Soo Bin
Multicultural Perspectives, v20 n2 p117-121 2018
Based on my reflections on "being a foreigner," I explore the boundaries of citizenship education in this essay. I use my foreign identity to articulate how social justice education can perpetuate closed-mindedness in classrooms by moving too quickly to student activism. I situate my experiences and reflections on being a foreigner within previous conversations about notions of certainty and indoctrination in the field of education philosophy, and I make an argument to create a safe intellectual space for my students. Creating such space is not neglecting moral responsibility or perpetuating privilege but actually navigating through the binary between "us" and "them."
