Border Pedagogy: A Study of Preservice Teacher Transformation
Romo, Jaime J.; Chavez, Claudia
Educational Forum, The, v70 n2 p142-153 Win 2006
In our increasingly interconnected global society, learning to think about ourselves in a border context, making crossings and connections, reflecting on our position and power, and articulating a vision of social justice are necessary civic skills. Developing educational border crossers who have moved beyond stereotyping and the tourist's gaze to have a sensibility for social justice can enrich public life and stimulate the deepest forms of civic engagement. This study examines a teacher education program's nascent efforts to develop multicultural competencies, specifically border pedagogy, in future teachers.
