What Makes Anti-Racist Pedagogy in Teacher Education Difficult? Three Popular Ideological Assumptions.
St. Denis, Verna; Schick, Carol
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v49 n1 p55-69 Spr 2003
Two Aboriginal and White educators co-developed and taught an integrated anti-racist course for predominantly White preservice teachers in Saskatchewan. Analysis of student comments yielded three common ideological assumptions contributing to student resistance: race doesn't matter; everyone has equal opportunity; and one's individual acts and good intentions can secure innocence as well as superiority. Strategies for countering such beliefs are discussed. (Contains 54 references.) (SV)
