Yesterday at #ctj_pd workshop, @Klind2013 asked, "What does it mean to #DisruptTexts?" My initial response was to frame it w/in the context of our classrooms. And so #DisruptTexts for me involves at least two related and necessary moves: /1
1) Replace problematic texts to make space for the rich literary & intellectual history of POC. Consider the themes or essential ?s explored in the curriculum & ask: whose voices, what points-of-view are not reflected in our study? Who is being centered? Then find those texts. /2
This may require some honest, difficult conversations w/colleagues. It will mean, as @TchKimPossible pointed out yesterday, talking about racism, how it manifests itself in our choices, about voices we value and those we do have not. There will be discomfort and defensiveness. /3
