"Little people can learn about race" : thinking with the wake in a first-grade classroom
Metadata[+] Show full item record
This dissertation sought to explore the processes and actions that unfolded in a first-grade classroom when teaching and learning about topics of race and racism. I developed a research(ing) relationship with the classroom teacher, where we collaborated and worked together. The theory of the wake, which is grounded in antiblackness and Afro-pessimism, and the four theoretical concepts within, was engaged to inquire how these theoretical processes can be recognized when teaching and learning with young children. A thinking with theory methodology were engaged to bring about valuable questions and implications during the classroom research. A discussion of contributions related to theory, methodology, and pedagogy are described.
