Courageous Conversations: Reflections on a Queer Life Narrative Model
DeJean, William
Teacher Educator, v45 n4 p233-243 2010
Much has been written about the challenges facing gay and lesbian educators working in K-12 environments, yet little is written about queer preservice teachers who are preparing to enter the profession. As such, this article examines the interconnection between a queer teacher educator and a lesbian preservice teacher as they work collaboratively to break the discursive silence of queerness in teacher education. The article is a call for dialogue about ways for queer teacher educators to support queer preservice teachers, who often must navigate their queer identities in both the university and K-12 environment concurrently. (Contains 1 figure and 1 footnote.)
