Teachers' Developing Understandings about Race and Achievement in a Graduate Course on Literacy Learning
McIntyre, Ellen; Hulan, Nancy
Teacher Education and Practice, v23 n2 p194-209 Spr 2010
In this article, we describe a study of teachers' constructions of understandings about race and achievement in the context of a course on literacy learning and instruction. We documented the course activities, the readings, the assignments, and the teachers' responses related to race during the semester course. The lead researcher also interviewed a few teachers after the course. We analyzed all statements that teachers made concerning race and education and found that while some new understandings emerged during the course, some students' viewpoints moved toward more explicit racism. The views presented in these findings will likely resonate with other teacher educators, which may inspire them to intervene when views of teachers are not in the best interest of the students they teach.
