White Male Teachers on Difference: Narratives of Contact and Tensions
Jupp, James C.; Slattery, Patrick
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v23 n2 p199-215 Mar 2010
This research reflection explores a narrative pattern that emerged in participants' interviews on student differences. In exploring this narrative pattern, this reflection reveals tensions between participants' "structural" and "deficit" understandings of student differences of race, class, culture, and language. Framing participants' understandings of structural and deficit thinking, this reflection articulates three discursive contexts relating to participants' work. Articulating participants' structural and deficit thinking within discursive contexts, this reflection seeks to re-initiate the conversation on white teachers through increased attention to researcher positionality, discursive contexts, and research pedagogy.
