The Cultural Organizing of Youth Ethnographers: Formalizing a Praxis-Based Pedagogy
Cammarota, Julio
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v39 n1 p45-58 Mar 2008
This article illustrates how elements of praxis within George Spindler's cultural therapy and Paul Willis's cultural production are useful precedents for a praxis-based pedagogy. I argue that combining the praxis elements within cultural therapy and cultural production engenders a third mode of ethnographic praxis that I call "cultural organizing." The article provides an example of cultural organizing among Latina/o high school students in Tucson, Arizona.
