Addressing "Who Am I?" before "Who Are They?" when Facing Diversity
Frank, Jan L. H.; Frank, Kerry D.
Teacher Education and Practice, v19 n2 p218-228 Spr 2006
Before we as teachers can even begin to address the question of "Who are our students?" we must first reflect on and analyze ourselves--who we are in terms of race, ethnicity, class, gender, culture, personality, and other important factors. Relating to our students, challenging their thinking and actions, and being voices for change all demand that we understand who we are and how our selves influence thinking, behavior, interaction, and perception.
