Unscripting Curriculum: Toward a Critical Trans Pedagogy
Keenan, Harper Benjamin
Harvard Educational Review, v87 n4 p538-556 Win 2017
In this essay, Harper B. Keenan draws on his own experience as a white queer and trans educator to consider the meaning of a critical trans pedagogy. Amid dissonant narratives of equal rights and subjection, he explores how his classroom teaching is shaped by his own experience of gender conditioning as well as by the contemporary political climate surrounding trans identity. Keenan argues that a critical trans pedagogy requires "unscripting" and must necessarily support children in constructing new knowledge.
