Whiteness, Pedagogy, and Youth in America: Critical Whiteness Studies in the Classroom (Routledge Research in Educational Equality and Diversity) (Hardcover)
This book employs a narrative approach to recount and interpret the story of an innovative teaching and learning project about whiteness. By offering a first-hand description of a nationally-recognized, high school-based Youth Participatory Action Research project--The Whiteness Project--this book draws out the conflicts and complexities at the core of white students' racial identities. Critical of the essentializing frameworks traditionally given to address white privilege, this volume advances a distinctive and theoretically robust account of 'second-wave critical whiteness pedagogy'.
