Using Performance Ethnography to Confront Issues of Privilege, Race, and Institutional Racism: An Account of an Arts-Based Teacher Education Project
Fierros, Edward Garcia
Multicultural Perspectives, v11 n1 p3-11 Jan 2009
Preservice student teachers engaged in a collaborative research initiative to examine the memory of the 1954 "Brown v. Topeka Board of Education" decision that culminated in a public performance. Ethnographic data were translated into performance texts through students' performances that confronted issues of privilege, race, and institutional racism in their university context. Critical examinations of the memory of the "Brown" court decision in their university learning community led to implications for teacher education. Students' use of performance ethnography as an arts-based educational research approach is discussed as a valuable means of alternative assessment. (Contains 1 table and 1 footnote.)
