Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Describes how a group of white female student teachers examined their "whiteness" and developed ways of thinking critically about race and racism in educational practice.

McIntyre describes how a group of white middle- and upper-middle-class female student teachers examined their "whiteness" and how they, as current and future educators, might develop teaching strategies that aim to disrupt and eliminate the oppressiveness of white privilege in education. The group analyzed ways of making meaning about whiteness and thinking critically about race and racism, and explored how racial identity is implicated in the formation and implementation of teaching practices.

"Considering that 80 percent of all teachers in this country are white and the student population continues to become more and more diverse, it is imperative that those responsible for shaping our future society take a long, hard look at how they fit into a racist system."-- Maria V. Zavala, Department of Psychology and Education, Mount Holyoke College

"This is an essential contribution to the social sciences in general and to multicultural educators in particular." -- Kent Koppelman, Department of Education, University of Wisconsin - La Crosse

"Alice McIntyre has given us a very helpful teaching tool. By holding up to us our own words, McIntyre strives to deepen our own responsibility for race relations." -- Christine E. Sleeter from the Foreword

Alice McIntyre is Assistant Professor in the Graduate School of Education and Allied Professions at Fairfield University.
