A Focus on Becoming: Reflections on Teaching

teaching, refugees, ideological becoming, critical consciousness


Teaching in diverse contexts can be a challenge for teachers who strive to create classrooms that respect the diversity of students. Among many skills, teaching requires a critical consciousness of the ideologies that shape the pedagogy within a classroom. As a White, American teacher who speaks English as my native language, I bring with me and my teaching practice multiple perspectives of privilege. In this narrative, I reflect on my experience using humanizing pedagogy to critically examine my experience while teaching a summer camp for teenage girls who came to the United States as refugees.
