Bondestam, Fredrik – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2011
Feminist pedagogy implies performing some kind of feminist teaching practices, while at the same time contesting the very possibility of performing such practices. One needs to start out from the assumption that only what cannot be foreseen will enable one not just to overcome resistance to feminist knowledge and teaching but also to make such…

Weitz, Rose – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2010
A common (although not universal) goal of feminist teachers is to create a "safe environment" in the classroom. The meaning of that term, however, varies considerably--some hope students will feel they can share personal feelings and experiences without fear of judgment, some that students will feel they can state their opinions without fear of…

Kishimoto, Kyoko; Mwangi, Mumbi – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2009
With its emphasis on empowering students' voices and valuing experiential knowledge, and on collaborating and creating community, feminist pedagogy has long been understood as integral to the field of women's studies.

Walker, Danna L.; Geertsema, Margaretha; Barnett, Barbara – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2009
Teaching is always challenging, and for some teachers who are feminists, teaching journalism is difficult. The tenets of good journalism--objectivity and neutrality--are often antithetical to their feminist values. Educators face the dilemma of how to incorporate feminist sensibilities into teaching journalism--a profession that strives for…

Durfee, Alesha; Rosenberg, Karen – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2009
In the authors' experience, most instructors have dealt with a student "crisis" in some form. When a paper is late, an assignment incomplete, an exam missed, or a lecture skipped, students seeking special accommodations from instructors frequently share (often unsolicited) intimate details about their personal lives. College instructors…

Copp, Martha; Kleinman, Sherryl – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2008
For decades, feminist teachers have been working in a chilly political climate. Rightwing critics claim that women's studies programs suffer from "insularity and narrowness, ideological bias, and a tendency toward misinformation." In the mainstream media, feminism is both vilified and trivialized. It's no wonder that many students doubt that…

Examines the ways in which authority and power operate in the classroom. Uses two metaphors to describe the poles of classroom dynamics (the love-relationship and the battlefield model).

Stresses that gender and race are inseparable parts of identity,…
