Call for Papers for an edited volume entitled “Teaching to Difference?” This volume is a comparative look at pedagogical issues in the classroom across ethnicities. It is presented from the viewpoint of minority teaching practitioners and those in schools with diverse student populations.
Chapters are based on experiential (point of view) analysis. Topics include, but are not limited to the questions below:
1. How do you connect the (national/state) curriculum to the lived experiences of your students?
2. If you are the “different other” in your classroom, how do you connect to students?
3. What are the challenges and opportunities of diversity in the classroom in terms of the way you teach?
4. How do you reconcile or navigate the gap/imbalance between diversity and multicultural public discourse from school and classroom practices?
5. Pedagogically, how do you deal with the normalised practice of streaming minority students into special education, alternative schools and behavioural management programs?
Please submit an abstract of no more than 250 words, plus a brief biography (100 words max) by August 07, 2011 to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Teaching to Difference?” in the subject line. Final papers, if selected, will be due October 31, 2011.
