The Secret Identity of Science Education: Masculine and Politically Conservative?
Lemke, Jay
Cultural Studies of Science Education, v6 n2 p287-292 Jun 2011
This response to Jesse Bazzul and Heather Sykes' paper, "The secret identity of a biology textbook: straight and naturally sexed," explores their critiques of textbooks and curricula that authoritatively present scientific accounts of the natural world without engaging students in critical thinking. It proposes that we need to go beyond such useful critiques to develop alternatives to the unsatisfactory heteronormative status quo in biology textbooks and in science education more generally.
