Equity in the Teaching of History

Equity in the Teaching of History

(p.211) 10 Equity in the Teaching of History
Achieving College Dreams

Ryan Grow

Oxford University Press

This chapter, written by a history teacher, speaks to the ways in which the teaching of history is a particularly apt setting for creating equity in a school—with opportunities in the creation of a classroom culture to knock away as many of the divisive barriers human beings have used to divide themselves over the centuries. Teaching about and with equity includes equity of theme, equity of access, and equity of experience. The chapter argues that paying attention to all of these types of equity results in pedagogical equity, which when achieved, enables a diversity of students to see their historical legacy; engage deeply with the material; and have a stake in the subject matter, seen as relevant to their own lives.

Keywords:   CAL Prep, equity of access, equity of experience, equity of theme, pedagogy/history
