Race, Social Studies Content, and Pedagogy: Wrestling through Discomfort Together
Gershon, Walter S.; Bilinovich, Carrie; Peel, Amanda
Canadian Social Studies, v44 n1 p29-37 Fall 2010
This autobiographical piece of collaborative discensus (Gershon, 2008; Gershon, Peel & Bilinovich, 2009) presents the authors' interwoven perspectives about the challenges they faced as they talked about race in a pre-service social studies class. Their work here serves two main purposes. First it is an opportunity for a teacher and two former students to think about the difficulties pre-service social studies teachers had in conceptualizing and talking about the relationship between race and social studies content. Second, this transparent discussion also serves as an opportunity to consider what such understandings of social studies might mean in practice.
