Six Lenses for Anti-Oppressive Education: Partial Stories, Improbable Conversationsby Kevin K. Kumashiro, Bic Ngo
This book offers a range of conceptual and curricular resources for elementary and secondary educators as well as teacher educators interested in exploring new and innovative ways to challenge racism, classism, sexism, heterosexism, and other forms of oppression in the classroom. It blends analyses of and recommendations for K-12 education and teacher education, and focuses on the barriers we often confront when teaching, learning, and learning to teach toward social justice. The authors work in K-12 schools and teacher education programs across North America and advocate perspectives and practices that, when combined, promise to take the field of anti-oppressive education in helpful, groundbreaking directions. This book is divided into six parts, each part consisting of two or three chapters that explore, in different ways, a theme of anti-oppressive education. The chapters reflect a range of content areas (social studies, English language arts, «foreign» languages, health, natural sciences, and mathematics) in both K-12 education and teacher education; student and teacher populations (elementary, secondary, university); social differences and oppressions (based on race, culture, social class, gender, sexual orientation, language, age, disabilities); activities (simulations, service learning, book clubs, lesson planning); and research methods (historiography, curriculum analysis, discourse analysis, case study, self-study).
