Deconstructing Deficit Orientation: Teacher Perceptions of Lived Experiences of Young Children
Keller Nicol, Marilyn; Sherrod, Ambra
Texas Education Review, v11 n1 p97-112 2023
This conceptual paper explored the fundamental barriers to successful equity training and professional development for teachers. This was done to show the need for a professional development series, based on Ting-Toomey and Chung's (2012) cultural value pattern analysis. Using the theoretical lens of post-colonial theory, the authors posit the need for professional development that begins with teacher positioning (Davies & Harré, 1990) for purpose of disrupting deficit-oriented epistemes of sociocultural differences. The conceptual framework contains activities for participants, as well as future recommendations for further training.
