When Black girls unite: How critical teacher reflection can lead to a pedagogy of power. 

Date: Tuesday April 15th
Time: 7:30 pm
Place: SOE 110

Traditionally, urban teacher education programs fail to provide pre- and in-service educators with specific examples of how critical theories can be applied in racially diverse classrooms. This, in turn, hinders the ability of aspiring social justice teachers to become transformative educators for historically marginalized youth. As an urban teacher-practitioner, Monique Lane experienced these very dilemmas in her own preparation. Drawing from five years of teaching high school English in a Los Angeles school, this lecture seeks to provide a framework that educators may utilize to bridge the gap between critical theory and classroom practice. Specifically, it will elucidate how Black feminist pedagogy functioned as a practical and effective method of achieving empowered race and gender identities, and heightened school participation for urban African-American female youth.
