The Difficulty with Difference in Teacher Education: Toward a Pedagogy of Compassion.
Carson, Terry; Johnston, Ingrid
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v46 n1 p75-83 Spr 2000
In a course preparing student teachers for culturally diverse classrooms, passionate debate about racism and affirmative action revealed some students' entrenched resistance to "difficult knowledge" about oppression and white privilege. A pedagogy of compassion builds trust by recognizing the need to learn about other peoples' realities through acknowledging each person's subject position and point of departure. (TD)
