Rights for Academic Freedomishow video httpwwwyoutubecomwatchvLtgeXPstpk Horowitz Freedom Center wwwhorwitzfreedomcenter org httpwww 39 D J 393 J m J 1925aborhtml Academic Bill of Rights With a pro osed Academic Bill of Rights1 on the horizon that challenges academic free om s self regulation and autonomy in the universities it would seem that the First Amendment would be summoned to reconcile these divisive issues in schools in the not so distant future Academic freedom is an umbrella term that encompasses the constitutional and professional rights of teachers Fly are 1976 Freedom of teachin is one of the four elements that is embodie by academic freedom2 One 0 the plaguing questions of our time within education is can a teacher be dismissed for actions or discourse used in the classroom One might ascertain that the First Amendment uarantees the teacher the right to say or behave according to her his beliefs gut this is not the case The courts have never fully agreed that freedom of speech is absolute Flygare 1976 However when a teacher is dismissed from a position the courts must assess each situation case by case to determine whether the school board properly restrained the teacher s freedom of speech Flygare 1976 9 The courts examine several factors such as the age of the students ex oseg to the objectionable speech the relevancy of the objection whether 0 39cies or regulations about classroom expression exist and whether any aternative for free speech exists in the school The courts may also examine if the speech was symbolic that is if a teacher wore an armband button or badge As we unpack some of the issues facing secondary English teachers it is also im ortant to update where we stand now on censorshi and think forward about ow the First Amendment continues to affect teacfhers Public school teachers need to understand that First Amendment rights of academic freedom accorded to university professors are much more limited in public elementary and secondary schools It is unlikely that a public school teacher could say or post what McLaren posted on his web site without repercussions It should be noted that while we are discussing preservice teachers First Amendment ri hts classroom students ri hts are suspended when they enter public SC 001 domain Tierney 2006 in his review of current texts on hate speech in American universities asked a oignant question Who decides whether speech is hateful or how academic reedom is de ned 33 Answers to these questions have yet to be fully reconciled because school districts vary on what can and cannot be said and on how the First Amendment is interpreted In fact demands va from state to state district to district and school to school which makes it a the more dif cult to achieve consensus on how the First Amendment is upheld in particular cases With only fewer than 10 of postsecondary institutions that have adopted policies that challenge First Amendment principles Gould as in Tierney 2006 p 34 it is little wonder that English educators might feel hesitant to address loaded topics in their methods courses END Notes l The Academic Bill of Rights is a document that calls for universities to maintain political pluralism and diversity The Bill requires that no political ideological or relig ious orthodoxy should be imposed on professors and researchers through the hiring or termination process It also seeks to enforce that faculty members will not use their courses or their position for the purpose of political ideological religious or antireligious indoctrination This grows out of the Academic Bill of Rights originally drafted by David Horowitz and which has now been proposed as House Concurrent Resolution318 108th Congress 2003 2 Academic freedom also includes freedom of research freedom of outside utterance and association and academic due process Flygare 1976 Vs What do you think about this quote Consequently a critical issue we face with employing social justice in teacher education is that promoting social justice in teacher education is anathema to the mission and traditions of the modern university which is intended to foster an open intellectual atmosphere of free thought and speech CochranSmith et al 2009 p 633 th0ughts Where are your ethics here Chapter 1 Kincehloe pp 3637 discusses where we re evolving in education as an outcome of CP what do you think about his suggestions Where are we headed l the development of the socioindividual imagination 2 the reconstitution of the individual outside of the boundaries of abstract individualism 3 the understanding of power and ability to interpret its effects on the social and the individual 4 the provision of alternatives to the alienation of the individual 5 the cultivation of the critical consciousness that is aware of the social construction of subjectivity 6 the construction of democratic communitybuilding relationships 7 the reconceptualization of reason 8 the production of social skills necessary to active participation in the transformed inclusive community III MORRELL CRITICAL ENGLISH EDUCATION What does he say is important to being an English

critical possibilities knowledge is based on scientific evidence and theory g believed that theory must grow out of a context for theory to become theory and that theories grow out of spaces of

western literacy Plato first great literate in western culture Phaedrus Plato feared that writing would lead to the downfall of memoryexternal crutch Plato believed true knowledge came from the question what do you mean He attacked any form of language that could not hold up to the question what do you mean because it led to a genuine search for the truthihence valued the dialogic 6 But he

privatizing the educational system C Bush used the Texas Miracle to spearhead educational policy and based education reform through high stakes testing By 1990 Texas Education Agency utilized TASS to measure students successes in math reading science and social studies Students who did poorly were either put into special education or held back at grade level This process led to extremely high drop out rates in Texas D Office for Civil Rights charged discriminatory practices against them for unfair practices against guess who African Americans and HispanicLEP students E High dropour rates are fantastic for raising test scores p 100 Numbers were manipulated to save face by superintendent of Houston Public Schools Ron Paige and other admins and teachers encouraged students to cheat Paige won National Superintendent of the year and was appointed Secretagy of Education by GW Bush F Bush outsourced test prep and review to McGrawHill and funded them G Soooo we have NCLB and schools give 50

s foundation for family literacy and awarded Paige the highest award while as superintendent The Negroponte Jr who was MH exec vp went on to become our ambassador to Iraq under Bush Questions This is all quite nepotistic What is your opinion of high stakes testing Who is benefiting How do highstakes testing perpetuate capitalist market Are we to be concerned about Arne Duncan Discuss to which other areas are schools outsourced media policy Englishonly mental health theory without evidence III Chapter 20 Critical Pedagogy William Stanley A Critical pedagogy is shaped by a neoMarXist critique of capitalism that views education as a wider effort to bring about a radical transformation of the American political and economic systemidiscuss A1 Dewey 0n Deliberative Democracy John Dewey s words have long served as a model for democratic schooling and for the restoration of America as a great model for a global community In fact he said that a success to a deliberative democracy is dependent on how a communi communicatesi free social inquiry p 350 with one another to name problems and then enact change 19271988 B What is neoliberalism C What is neoconservatism D How do you reconcile teaching students who come from backgrounds which embrace ideologies from all of these perspectives Are we honoring the principals of education that were laid of by Dewey in Democracy in

theorypractice hat is helping shape your pedagogy Giroux Translating the Future Discuss He provides a sense of hope and change s0 if we review critical pedagogy past and present we now have sense of where we are and how far we ve come but what can help forge and sustain a commitment to it and at whatwhose cost Week 6 October 6m Critical Pedagogv and Social Justice Begin with reviewing the beliefs statement and a de nition for social justice I The Critical Pedagogy Reader A Confronting Class in the Classroom bell hooks p 135143 Questions 1 Why do you think social class is rarely discussed in academic settings 2 How might you address teaching about class differences through literature as a sense of building agency 3 How can understanding class status help promote social justice Activity Level Playing Field Terms power privilege oppression 11 Critical Pedagogy A Chapter 4 Locations or Not of CP in Les Petites et les Grendes Histories Kathleen Berry 1 Pedagogy in Europe means the relationship and responsibility to the other and it is critical 7 make sense 2 Discussion Tell us about your rst experiences with injustice 3 How is the personal related to your larger experiences petit to grande B Musicing Paulo Freire A CP for Music Education by Frank Abrahams CP in music means that seeks to break down the barriers that exist between the music students hear and love outside of the classroom and the music their teachers want them to learn music becomes empowering 1 What did you think about how music is typically taught in schools that it is disembedded from the context 2 Why are music programs marginalized in schools How have some music program perpetuated dominant ideologies 3 How can music be beneficial to students 4 How might you include music and cp in your classroom 5 See p 228 for CP for music education 6 How can music develop agency in students lives III Applebaum B Social justice education moral agency anal the subject of resistance Applebaum 2004 reveals that when we consider the political nature of social justice teaching we cannot separate it from a moral position or as an ethical stance Research indicates that social justice Miller in press is highly political because ofits inherent ability to challenge the status quo and its potential to dismantle of hierarchy of privilege that largely goes uncheckedgand which is further sustained by erecting politicized barriers that make it dif cult to move social justice into policy It behooves us to explore this idea of moral agency because it threatens to reposition our own morality as the right morality and privileges us over those with whom we might find oppressive By eliding this struggle we perpetuate inequities that we want to dismantle and reposition not only whiteness but us as moral authority Our research should not come across as moralistic but we must also understand how to draw a boundary between what is and isn t socially just as we relate it to the spacetime of the rotating morals under any governing democracy Therefore there is a paradox inherent in social justice research Careful consideration of how to address moral agency with preservice teachers is central to not exuding a proselytizing stance Applebaum 2004 says that moral agency must avoid assumptions of certainty p 70 and it must be a voluntary noniforced or coercive act She also explains that teachers should encourage in their own students how their own moral motivations reposition whiteness Moral agency must avoid the pitfalls of certainty IV Brown K Social Justice education for preservice leaders 1 Kathleen Brown 2005 tells us the evidence is clear that various segments of our public school population experiences negative and inequitable treatment on a daily basis p 155 LadsoniBillings 1994 Sheurich amp Laible 1995 Valenzuela 1999 Still students of color and white students from low socioeconomic backgrounds experience lower standardized test scores teacher expectations and access to resources Brown 2005 In fact over 44 million second language learners are enrolled in the United States public schooling system and are expected to take the same standardized tests and are typically evaluated similarly to students whose first language is English Arce Luna Borjian amp Conrad 2005 2 It is important to remember that teachers identities inform their curricular decisions relationships with students and educational philosophies Brown 2006 p 259 and that teachers expectations and perceptions of youth affect student achievement Brown 2006 p 260 We have a social moral and ethical responsibility to make social justice into a pillar in our methods courses and to also allow for students to make decisions about what does and doesn t authenticate their principles along the way When individuals are empowered and informed they are better prepared to effect change It is not to say that we need to overhaul democracy but it is to say that we can challenge the ways that the principles in a given democracy have and can hold people from rising to their full potentials Questions What does it mean to be a white teacher and how can you challenge your own complicity How do we invite all voices to be heard At what point will you draw the line How do we come across not as moralistic or as a moral authority When Butler says we have agency when we are subjects what is a subject vs object not as objects what does she mean especially with regard to heteronormativity and patriarchy Agencyresistance to dominant ideological tropes Week 7 October 13

Explain identity in relationship to the matrix Leander 2002 Moje 2002 and Hagood 2002 suggest that identities can be shaped in response to oppressive structures When individuals negotiate and contest their identity development by dominant culture they may develop identities that may be marginalized by social groups that retain power Rather than negotiate identities towards these researchers suggest that identities be negotiated against 1 Critical literacy is Interrogating multiple points of View Disrupting the commonplace Focusing on sociopolitical issues and taking action Promoting social justice Comber and Simpson 2001 suggest that the agenda of critical literacy is such that it examines the relationships between language practices power relations and identities 271 They suggest that teachers must respond to the changing times amidst con icting and changing cultural practices when selecting texts so as to help students make meaning of the world in which they live 277

particular formations of self 248 Texts are situated within certain social and cultural groups By all intensive purposes texts are imbued by larger sociopolitical issues of power that are associated in cultural and social grou s Texts re ect the chan es in society such as in how power may change particular ethnicities c asses and or social patterns In other words as perceptions of ethnicities change and as they may each gain access to positions of ower and authority texts re ect those changes Our identities are impacted y their transactions with those texts and when the texts shift along with the changes in society so too do our identities shift This means that from a poststructuralist perspective identities are constantly in ux a what was your aesthetic and efferent response to the alticle b What did you make of the teachers reactions to Timony in the school c Had you been in the same position as the teachers in the school how might you have addressed Timony Hagood s 2002 seminal study illustrates how both postmodernism and identity can be coconstructed as she rep0siti0ned and destabilized the readers gaze so that we might better understand the experience of the actant Timony a young man had been marginalized by his teachers and considered atrisk for a variety of reasons but speci cally for wearing angstridden clothing carrying a Kurt Cobain lead singer of the band Nirvana who committed suicide guitar pick which was perceived as a potential weapon and for reading texts about Kurt Cobain From a structuralist view the teachers assumed the stance that identity is associated with and situated within what we read and because of that stance Timony s identity and feelings of selfworth went unrealized by them However Timony s discourse at school illustrated that he was to the contrary a critic of teen angst and against Cobain s suicide If his teachers had truly listened to him they would have known and recognized that Timony s identity was negotiated outside of his reading of Cobain and that he transacted the construction of himself against the text not through the text itself Had teachers understood a poststructuralist perspective or understood how meaning and identity can be reconstructed perhaps Timony would not have been labeled as atrisk Sadly though Timony s discourse was misinterpreted by those in school and subsequently he was positioned as an atrisk youth Hagood s research admonishes us to reconsider the hazards of understanding situations or conducting research through myopic lenses As a signi er of the uid nature of teaching it is important to recall that Timony Hagood 2002 was at risk of being mislabeled but when we reconceptualize his predicament at school through a different lens such as the matrix and in applying thirdspace we see that Timony wasn t the problem it was the myopic view of some There are indeed places and spaces for different types of teaching styles and pedagogies that need to be enacted and performed 111 Lewinson et al Taking on critical literacy T he journey of newcomers and novices Pull out and scan article Lewinson et al 2002 suggest that the eld of critical literacy is de ned by disrupting the commonplace interrogating multiple view points focusing on sociopolitical issues and taking action and promoting social justice through texts 3 Therefore critical literacy can be a vehicle through which identity is negotiated as texts bump up against the self Since critical literacy is political practice in uenced by social cultural and historical factors Barton amp Hamilton 2000 Street 1995 as in Hagood 2002 p 249 and is committed foremost to the alleviation of human suffering and to the formation of a more just world through the critique of existing social and political problems and the posing of alternatives Hagood 2002 p 249 texts taught through a poststructuralist lens can be a way to help youth negotiate and af rm their identities as they make meaning of the world in which they live A poststructuralist reading of texts can be a powerful way to assist youth in holding onto their authentic selves while it teaches them to interact with the world so they may act on it in a fashion that does not perpetuate hegemony or the status quo Youth with an af rmed authentic self can seek to transform the world through a subjective self that does not ascribe to the construction that the school system seeks to impose upon them Consequently the world environment becomes vulnerable to a new subjectivity as it transacts with authentic selves free of construction Read the Three Little Pigs book again IV Shannon P Critical literacy in everyday life Discuss through context below V Activating Critical literacy Daily students digest and peel back layers of the text through class discussion in depth text analysis student teaching ap endix A daily check ins vocabulary building appendix B an essay 2111ch lastly a social action project appendix C l have attached several ideas for other social action projects here I treat texts with great reverence and by modeling my love and passion for reading my students often inherit a dee sense and commitment to interrogating reading through their own lenses ogether we interrogate deeper sociopolitical issues as they intersect with the readings What I have seen students learn from studyin each novel short story and poem this way is a new and more critical way 0 transacting with their own experience through the text Rosenblatt 1978 As individuals we each make meaning of the text in our lives and often we make meaning as a community 1 illustrate this by teaching N afiw 074 by Richard Wright Handout Nafim 074 examples Teaching Native Son and Disrupting the Commonplace When I teach Nafi e 3074 students must complete the following tasks write a nal a er questions form out of our dialogic take a vocabulary check in vocaEuiJary comes from the words they select from the text that they don t already know students teach a portion from the text an wa they want highlight and complete marginalia within the text itself stu ents highli ht the how and why an author conveys meaning through a key that is create in the front of their texts allusion diction gurative language archetypes syntax point of view theme imagery and symbolism and generally the most exciting aspect for them is to complete a social action project lnterrogatin Multiple Viewpoints and Sociopolitical Issues On the first ay of the new unit I provide a brief background of the author time period and major social and economic issues during which the book was centered For Native 3074 I discuss communism the abolition of slavery and its legacy and the personal politics of Richard Wright and of his subsequent alienation by other Black protest writers This segues into self selecting partners who will team teach a portion of the book I break down the book into readings by chapters or page numbers and the students choose their groupings I find this works best because students tend to soar when they can select partners rather than be re assigned partners Students will make the time to meet outside of class an will teach the class in whatever way they want about their portion of the text as per rubric requirements Over the years I have seen the most fascinating student teachings jem fpri ger shows AA meetings jeopart games sidewalk chalk collages human trivial ursuit sling shots and fami or shows Students decide how they want to teach a section of the book and in so doing they ain power over their own experience and can make meaning of the text in w atever way they need to Most students have never been taught this way nor felt ownershi over their classroom experience and it tends to work positively for them A ter a given student teaching we always have discussion on that reading and make meaning of the text as it transacts with our lives Students develo their own questions from the reading and bring them in for discussion in a dia ogic settin I tend to facilitate the dialogue passively quietly taking notes and occasionalTy jumping in but for the most art I want them to challenge each other and discuss multiple erspectivesEhis is a modi ed form of Socratic Seminar 1 do not force stu ents to participate in seminar although each student must sit in the circle I do not want to perpetuate nor invalidate a student s home discourse that may be to remain silent So for those students especially Native Americans and often times Hispanic females although they are encouraged to speak it is not required instead I invite them to talk if they so choose Additional requirements for each day of the readings are to bring in three vocabulary words defined that I collect and assemble into their vocabulary building and test and to be prepared for a check in over the night s reading Check ins often include a re ection on the mar 39 alia they were to complete the night before and often serve as a check that ey read Students write a final paper on the text and through their writing have an opportunity to express themselves and even take action and promote social 39ustice Questions for the essay derive out of classroom experience and almost always point to deeper social issues Taking Action and Promoting Social Justice Usually I create social action projects and students have choices for which project they want to tackle Sometimes students initiate their own projects with prior consent The point of a social action project is that it becomes a concrete ex erience for students to have an aesthetic lived through transaction gRosenblatt 1978 with the text Years after students read a book they generally or et names and even plots but a lived through experience is alwa s em edded in the human psyche and becomes a way for people to reapplI reactivate and activate a memory into a new context For Nafi e 3074 they were to participate in a cooking show and show prejudice through cooking any of the lSMs which exist throughout the text racism sexism lookism heterosexism classism Their task is to create a recipe for the book and cook in front of the class a solution that would both symbolically and allegorically explain and attempt to heal any of the lSMs found present throughout the text Oftentimes we follow up on the project with a what comes now question We ask ourselves what do we do with these new insights and how do we transform our own experience into social justice This brings us to close each and every unit Summation on Critical Literac Bomer and Bomer 1999 articulate that curriculum is a metaphor for the lives we want to live and the people we want to be and I take this to mean that what we teach is a foreshadow of what is to come and a ashback to what has alread happened Teachers must choose texts that are relevant to their students 39ves and that encoura e an interrogation of larger sociopolitical issues Teachers are instruments 0 social chan e and creators of agents that is students who become ambassadors for socia change Agency is a personal narrative in which the self is a rotagonist who confronts and solves problems with associated motives and af ect Dozier Johnston and Rogers 2005 p 12 We must choose curriculum wisely we must teach with the intention to create a better world we must implant the seeds of knowledge and the understanding of o pression in our students Students are the future they are my investment of w at is and can happen in the future We feel a social responsibility to our friends family local and national communities and to the world to help students recognize that they are participants in society and carry with them as citizens of the United States democratic ideals and princi les and therein lies a personal res onsibility to step up and create the change t ey want to see in the world if an when they see that change is necessary to their own and others survival We must teach and show

the concept of the beauty myth Premise The basic premise of THE BEAUTY MYTH is that forced adherence to standards of physical beauty has grown stronger for women as they gained power in other societal arenas Wolf argues that this standard of beauty has taken over the work of social coercion formerly left to myths about motherhood domesticity chastity and passivity all of which have been used to keep women powerless In the author s view the gaunt youthful model has supplanted the happy housewife as the arbiter of successful womanhood The myth of beauty spreads the belief that an objective measurement of beauty exists and that woman must want to embody it and that men must want such women However Wolf contends that the beauty myth is really not about women it is about men s institutions and power Beauty is about behavior not appearance The qualities labelled beautiful in women in any given time period are no more than symbols of female behavior considered desirable at that time Besides weakening women psychologically the beauty myth feeds a multibilliondollar cosmetics industry and keeps women from rising too high in the workplace by offering a way around antidiscrimination
