Equity, Peace

See More

Abstract/Notes: Peace alone offers privileged individuals a false sense of comfort: the comfort of having life's necessities and, for some, having far beyond what they need. While they are safe, have their needs met and then some, and generate healthy relationships with those from similar walks of life, the peace that they live overlooks a deeply burdened world, soaked in social injustice and home to a global majority who often lacks the surface-level basics. Nonetheless, they persist, taking the lemons they've been offered-lower wages, under-resourced education, higher incarceration rates, and so on-and create a miraculous lemonade to combat the oppression, and even share their knowledge, culture, and resources with those more privileged in the hope that eventually it will lead to an equitable exchange of goods (and a mega lemonade stand for all). The prepared adult possesses an excellent teacher education but lacks a wider perspective of the whole global child-perhaps seeing them as they are at school but neglecting a family-based partnership to reveal the whole child as they exist in their home setting.

Journaling for Equity: A Self-Reflective Process of Discovery for Middle School Teachers in Public Charter Montessori Schools

Available from: ProQuest - Dissertations and Theses

See More

Abstract/Notes: This dissertation presents the results of an exploratory descriptive case study of the Moses Journaling for Equity Experience, a self-reflective intervention for public charter Montessori middle school teachers. The intervention is designed to elicit a reflective process to slow teachers’ thinking so they can decenter Whiteness and elevate the cultures and voices of their students of color within their pedagogy. The intervention was developed in the winter and spring of 2020, drawing heavily on the author’s experience as an equity consultant as well as the rich literature on ways teachers can nurture a sense of belonging for students of color. The intervention was refined with feedback from experienced Montessori teachers, with a focus on ensuring pedagogical alignment and curricular expectations within the Montessori system. Because this study represents the first time the intervention was implemented, it is most properly viewed as a pilot study. Three middle school Montessori teachers were recruited to participate. They began the intervention in the fall of 2021. The intervention consisted of eight weeks of reading curated articles, reflection questions, the collection of evidence, and the journaling of the reflection questions. A final debrief via Zoom encouraged participants to assess the effectiveness of the intervention. As a pilot study, the goal was to gather information on the overall effectiveness of the intervention, intervention shortcomings and strengths. Data were collected weekly in the form of written responses to questions intended to provoke thought and deep reflection on the part of the teachers. At the end of the intervention, each teacher participated in a semi-structured interview to further explore the ideas shared in their individual weekly reflective writings. Critical Race Theory, White Supremacy Culture Characteristics, and the Concerns Based Adoption Model were all used to frame the analysis and to draw conclusions. Results suggest the intervention is effective at building teacher awareness of the cultural, academic, and social assets students of color bring to the classroom, which is the beginning point for teachers to decenter Whiteness in their classrooms to support student of color belonging.
