Deconstructing Whiteness: Uncovering Prospective Teachers' Understandings of Their Culture–A Latina Professor's Perspective
Elementary and Literacy Education Department
This qualitative case study focuses on White prospective teachers' exploration of their cultural identities. Through writing, as a tool for reflection, 46 teacher education students exposed their understandings about what it means to be White. Deconstructing whiteness became a starting point to reflect on issues about race and cross-cultural experiences for my students and for me, their Latina professor.
