Resilience-Based Teaching in a Colonial Education System: Wendel White, Tarrah Krajnak, Lorena Molina, Emily Hanako Momohara
What does decolonization look like in your classroom and how does one go about it? Emily Hanako Momohara, Wendel White, Tarrah Krajnak and Lorena Guadalupe Molina will discuss the fundamentals of colonized curriculum, amplification of white culture, and patriarchal classroom structures to give examples for dismantling these traditional practices to better serve all students.
The conversation will cover building curriculum around race and history to transect a photography classroom that goes beyond racially diverse artist examples. Methods like the feminist classroom, non-masculine structure, and emotional development will expand instruction delivery.
A special emphasis will be placed on identifying and including the needs of 1st generation, differently-abled, new American, Black, Indigenous and People of Color in the student body, staff and faculty. A resilience-based approach to teaching can offer shared labor and the normalization of all the peoples.
