Décuré, Nicole – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2013
The surprise ending, a favorite feature of many short stories since the beginning of the genre, goes beyond the mere clever trick. It demonstrates, in a very efficient way, the depth of prejudice, the limits of our "horizon of expectations." Therefore, for teachers of English as a foreign language, among others, such material is a…

Macomber, Kris; Rusche, Sarah Nell – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2010

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.
