Summary

Teaching Toward a Decolonizing Pedagogy outlines educational practitioner development toward decolonizing practices and pedagogies for anti-racist, justice-based urban classrooms. Through rich personal narratives of one teacher’s critical reflections on her teaching, urban education scholarship and critical praxis are merged to provide an example of anti-racist urban schooling.

Steeped in theoretical practice, this book offers a narrative of one teacher’s efforts to decolonize her urban classroom, and to position it as a vehicle for racial and economic justice for marginalized and minoritized students. At once a model for deconstructing the white institutional space of US schooling and a personal account of obstacles to these efforts, TTDP presents a research-based ‘pueblo pedagogy’ that reconsiders teacher identity and teachers’ capacities for resilience, resistance, and community-based instruction. From this personal exploration, emergent and practicing teachers can extract curricula, practices, and dispositions toward advocacy for students most underserved and marginalized by public education. As an exemplar of decolonizing work both in classroom practices and in methodologies for educational research, this book presents tensions and complexities in school-based theorizing and praxis, and in teacher implementations of anti-racist pedagogies in and against the current U.S. model of colonial schooling.
