Creative Maladjustment: Engaging Personal Narrative to Teach Diversity and Social Justice
Ingram, Ilene L.
Journal of Women in Educational Leadership, v7 n1 p7-22 Jan 2009
We all have stories--beautiful and ugly stories--neat ending and never ending stories. When personal narratives, the stories that come closest to the human experience, are used as pedagogy, they can be windows offering views of different worlds and people. In this way, personal narratives become lanterns that illuminate the real and imagined fences that divide us as human beings. The intention of this article is to give an account of both how and why I use personal narrative as a pedagogical method to teach diversity and social justice.
