Teaching Controversy available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- Fernwood Publishing
This critical text on pedagogy addresses how classroom dynamics change when a teacher introduces controversial issues and challenges the tacit privileges perpetuated by accepted perceptions. Teachers learn how to deal with the stigma of challenging accepted norms and how to respect students who have different viewpoints. Power, control, and vulnerability are among the ideas discussed in detail to prevent teachers and students from being relegated to a marginal position when canonical concepts in a discipline are questioned.
