Walking the Talk: Examining Privilege and Race in a Ninth-Grade Classroom
Sassi, Kelly; Thomas, Ebony Elizabeth
English Journal, v97 n6 p25-31 Jul 2008
Kelly Sassi and Ebony Elizabeth Thomas describe their struggles and eventual success with students in constructing a "counternarrative to colormuteness and colorblindness"--the self-imposed student segregation and silencing of voice. Because of discussions during a Native American unit and student participation in a classroom intervention activity, interpersonal dynamics openly shifted for the better. (Contains 1 figure and 2 notes.)
