Engaging Preservice Teachers in an Anti-Sexism Curriculum
- Available for pre-order. Item will ship after September 30, 2021
This book details the development and impacts of anti-sexist professional development (PD) workshops for preservice teachers.
Designed to help teacher candidates recognize gendered approaches and reconsider their role as anti-sexist educators, Dismantling Educational Sexism through Teacher Education explores how workshops can respond directly to issues of misrepresentation, androcentric pedagogies, sexual harassment, and intersectionality as manifest in US schooling. By documenting participantsâ€™ learning, the text offers valuable insight into how teacher candidates view their role in tackling sexism and illustrates how an anti-sexist curriculum can positively impact on educatorsâ€™ discourses, beliefs, and teaching practices.
This volume will be a valuable resource for researchers and scholars involved in teacher education and issues of gender equity more broadly, as well as teacher educators seeking a theoretical framework for anti-sexist trainings.
