Branfman, Jonathan – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2017
While many instructors closet stigmatized identities, others "downplay" them--a tactic that sociologist Erving Goffman terms "covering."

Bailey, Cathryn – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2017
Cathryn Bailey writes that her own online teaching journey began about a decade ago, and says that in the beginning, she too felt many of the misgivings about online teaching that she now hears from friends and colleagues such as: (1) Isn't it just a fast food version of college; or (2) Doesn't it just dilute students' learning experience? Others'…

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…

Highberg, Nels P. – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2010

Middlecamp, Catherine Hurt – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2009
Like any good story, the Sufi tale places the listener squarely in the midst of life; that is, precisely where learning takes place. The tale pointed out that learning can be both exhilarating and painful. In college classrooms, teachers (and their students) are spared neither of these emotions when they engage in the learning process. In this…

Parker, Blaise Astra – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2009
The author's partner Jay died on May 23, 2006. It was sudden and unexpected--he was 31, the author was 30. Her grief was prolonged and agonizing, and she has since learned that doctors refer to her condition as "complicated grief." Truly, she is not sure how she survived the first year after Jay's death. She certainly was not convinced she wanted…

This essay traverses back and forth across the institutionally-imposed boundary between storytelling and critical reflection to explore how the author's thinking about feminist pedagogical praxis has been irrevocably altered by the experience of losing a parent as well as facilitating mutual support groups for young adults whose parents or…

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…
