Ellie Fitts Fulmer, Assistant Professor of Education, presents at the Action Research Network of the Americas Annual Conference
Contributed by Bonita Ferguson on 08/27/2014
Ellie Fitts Fulmer, Department of Education, presented, "The Course Identities Framework: A Tool for Investigating White Teachers' Engagement in Multicultural Education Coursework" at the Action Research Network of the Americas Annual Conference this spring. The paper suggests a pedagogical approach for teaching and co-learning that reconsiders the mythology of resistance narratives about student learning on personally and socially challenging content, such as anti-racism and social justice issues. This work draws upon data from Dr. Fulmer's practitioner inquiry study of her own graduate level teaching in recent years. The paper will be published in the first issue of the peer-reviewed ARNA Conference Proceedings this winter.
