Becoming Whole: A Letter to a Young, Miseducated Black Teacher
Cozart, Sheryl Conrad
Urban Review: Issues and Ideas in Public Education, v42 n1 p22-38 Mar 2010
The author uses this conceptual paper to present her personal narrative of transformation from miseducated (schooled) to educated (cultural broker) as a pretext to explore miseducation among young Black teachers. The author's personal transformation comes in response to the neglect of teacher educators to attend to our few African American preservice teachers. Using a letter format, this paper places a particular focus on African American teachers and teacher educators, who agonize over how to transmit culture when they themselves have been miseducated.
