Based on a 26-month ethnography of a tabletop role-playing game community, this chapter looks at how the triangulation of systems, setting, and player identity reinforces particular assumption within the game and beyond it. While built on data from an out-of-school learning setting, I explore pedagogical possibilities of exploring the systems, settings, and participants in public schooling contexts.

In the late 1960s, after the longest student strike in the nation resulted in the San Francisco State University’s development of Ethnic Studies--eventually becoming the first College of Ethnic Studies--we found ourselves still fighting for Ethnic Studies. Although the number of Ethnic Studies programs, curriculum, and courses have been growing throughout the nation, we find ourselves still fighting for Ethnic Studies. As the fight to define what content should be included in Ethnic Studies continues, there has also been an exploration of what effective pedagogy in Ethnic Studies looks like. There has been expansive thinking about what can be learned from Ethnic Studies that transcends the field and influences, shapes, and frames the way other subjects and courses are taught. In this paper, we build off the research base focused on Ethnic Studies pedagogies to offer a conceptualization of Community Responsive Pedagogy (CRP). We begin with historicizing the origins of Community Responsive Pedagogy in Ethnic Studies and then provide examples of how CRP can be applied both in Ethnic Studies classrooms and beyond.

Critical consciousness (CC) is an awareness and reflection of inequities, political efficacy, and agency in response to injustice. Similarly, sociopolitical development (SPD) is the process of developing a critical understanding, skill set, and emotional depth to enact individual agency against oppressive forces. This case study explores Black female youth as they co-construct CC toward SPD in Near Peer, a two-year tutoring and mentoring school-based program.

In this article, we report findings from a qualitative meta-synthesis of two decades of research on reading intervention classes in secondary schools. Our findings call attention to some of the consequences of intervention placement policies and practices for adolescents and amplify the need to reconceptualize adolescent literacy instruction to center youth’s identities, histories, and capacities as literacy knowers and doers.

Between 1913 and 1940, White educators and public officials in the territory of Hawaiʻi waged an aggressive campaign to Americanize the islands’ majority multiethnic public-school population. In doing so, they sought to legitimize U.S. occupation and re-create a social system of White supremacy reminiscent of the American South by rewriting Hawaiʻi’s Indigenous past and popularizing vocational education.

This article is about the ways educators in Head Start, the largest federal preschool program in the United States, respond to children’s play involving themes of police, arrest, and incarceration. Police are often integrated into preschool curriculums as “community helpers”; however, in the era of Black Lives Matter and Defund the Police, preschool teachers are less than certain about this framing. We applied Voloshinovian literary tools to video-cued interview transcripts from focus groups conducted in four communities. Results demonstrate Black, white, Samoan, and Latinx/Chicanx Head Start educators largely draw upon personal and community experiences in interpreting police play in curriculum. Educators’ interpretations are highly varied and occasionally conflicted. These responses to children can either mitigate and reframe or reinforce structurally inequitable practices in preschool.

In this literature review, we bring together literature from both principal and teacher preparation as we think about ways that preparation supports educators in developing skills, knowledge, and dispositions to counter racial inequities in their schools. We focus our review around one central question: In what ways does the teacher and principal preparation literature address candidates’ transformative learning around race?

This study examines how two state-level student voice groups for policy change sought equitable representation in their composition. As student voice groups expand beyond school, city, or district level groups to focus on state- and national-level advocacy, the character of their composition takes on additional importance as they claim to speak on behalf of larger numbers of students. The study explores how two student voice groups thought about, strived for, and fell short of equitable intra-group representation.

Using the International Baccalaureate’s (IB) high school music curriculum as an entry point, this article examines the kind of “international” student that the IB claims to produce. It argues that the IB’s conception of the music student, while seemingly neutral and universal, relies on modern Euro-American ways of being and thinking based on Enlightenment notions of reason, the nation, and progress. In addition, it explores how such tropes discursively produce difference and exclusion.

A significant body of research on gender and sexual diversity in education has called on teachers to “move beyond inclusion” of LGBTQ+ voices in curriculum by queering their practice and “disrupting cis-heteronormativity.” In this case study, we focus on patterned moves that Laura, a first-grade teacher, made to disrupt cis-heteronormativity by supporting her students to cultivate what we call a “queer mindset”—a way of thinking, feeling, doing, that “rattles” her students’ common sense.
