Eastman, Nicholas J.; Anderson, Morgan; Boyles, Deron – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
Simply put, charter schools have not lived up to their advocates' promise of equity. Using examples of tangible civil rights gains of the twentieth century (e.g. "Brown v. Board," "Lau v. Nichols") and extending feminist theories of invisible labor to include the labor of democracy, the authors argue that the charter movement…

Zembylas, Michalinos – Review of Education, Pedagogy & Cultural Studies, 2018
Within the broad Freirean paradigm that dominates critical pedagogy, there is a tendency to assume that affects such as love, hope, and empathy as well as revolutionary agency are naturally occurring in all human beings and that conscientization will eventually lead to empowerment for change (Amsler 2011). However, it is not clear how the workings…

Bozalek, Vivienne; Zembylas, Michalinos – Education as Change, 2017
Internationally there has been some interest in how critical pedagogies might be enabled in higher education to support transformative social agendas.

Roychoudhury, Anita – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2014
In this paper I discuss the challenges of teaching science concepts and discourse in preschool in light of the study conducted by Kristina Andersson and Annica Gullberg. I then suggest a complementary approach to teaching science at this level from the perspective of social construction of knowledge based on Vygotsky's theory (1934/1987). In…

From Facebook-coordinated high-school walkouts to compelling Internet-based protest art that has accompanied recent teacher strikes, grassroots education activism in the USA has gone digital.

Ergun, Emek – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2013
This article discusses the geo-political operations of student resistance in global feminisms classrooms, a topic that is largely ignored in the feminist pedagogies literature, where a generic understanding of the feminist teacher as a white, American and/or Western, and upper-class PhD seems to dominate. Given that the number of minority faculty…

White, Aaronette M. – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2011
Intersectionality takes into account how inequalities of race, gender, class, and sexuality "intersect," or work in combined ways, in the lives of Black women and other women of color. As a holistic teaching approach, it also has relevance for all people, male and female, straight and gay, rich and poor, and along the various continuums…

Hawkins, Tracy L. – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2015
In this article, Tracy L. Hawkins observes it is clear that educational technology use has moved beyond Blackboard and Desire-2Learn (D2L) to include the use of public sites and social media tools. This move toward inclusion of social media and other Web 2.0 technologies in education is important because it means that tools/products not created…
