Raising Race Questions: Whiteness and Inquiry in Education

Availability: Ready to download

Conversations about race can be confusing, contentious, and frightening, particularly for White people. Even just asking questions about race can be scary, because we are afraid of what our questions might reveal about our ignorance or bias. Raising Race Questions invites teachers to use inquiry as a way to develop sustained engagement with challenging racial questions and Conversations about race can be confusing, contentious, and frightening, particularly for White people. Even just asking questions about race can be scary, because we are afraid of what our questions might reveal about our ignorance or bias. Raising Race Questions invites teachers to use inquiry as a way to develop sustained engagement with challenging racial questions and to do so in community so that they learn how common their questions actually are. It lays out both a process for getting to questions that lead to growth and change, as well as a vision for where engagement with race questions might lead. Race questions are not meant to lead us into a quagmire of guilt, discomfort, or isolation. Sustained race inquiry is meant to lead to antiracist classrooms, positive racial identities, and a restoration of the wholeness of spirit and community that racism undermines. Book Features: New insights on race and equity in education, including the idea that a multicultural curriculum is not sufficient for building an antiracist classroom. Case studies of expert and experienced White teachers who still have questions about race. Approaches for talking about race in the K-12 classroom. Strategies for facilitating race conversations among adults. A variety of different resources useful in the teacher inquiry groups described in the book. Research with teachers, not on teachers, including written responses from each teacher whose classroom is featured in the book.

    Excellent. Short and very readable with lots of excellent stories and examples to help White teachers develop a better racial identity for themselves and a stronger toolbox for addressing racism in schools on many levels.

    An illuminating, clear, and accessible book. From the perspective of a white reader, this could be a powerful grounding text for teachers & admins engaging in inquiry and reflection around race & equity.

    Almost done with this, have been reading as part of group at my workplace. So readable and accessible, such a difficult, defensiveness-triggering topic, treated with absolute humility and compassion by the author. She has done great work here; I recommend this to, well, everyone.
