Teaching/Learning Anti-Racism: A Developmental Approach
This text offers a guide to the development of anti-racist identity, awareness and behavior. By integrating methodology and course content descriptions with student writings and analyses of students’ growth, the book highlights the interaction between teaching and learning. Organized chronologically from the first to the last class, the text describes how each session contributed to the students’ fascinating journey from pro-racist consciousness to active anti-racism. This volume aims to be more than a curriculum guide for implementing anti-racism education with adults. The authors, one white and one African-American, also share their own experiences – the successes, the failures, the difficulties, and, perhaps most importantly, what they learned from their students. The work seeks to provide both a “how-to” and a conceptual framework to help teachers and trainers adapt anti-racism education for their programmes.
