Seethaler, Ina C. – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2014
Where is the connection between feminism and service learning? In which ways can they profit from each other?

For the purpose of this article, the…

This essay looks primarily at one approach to teaching about privilege in a feminist research course.

Additionally, the paper…

Godbee, Beth; Novotny, Julia C. – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2013
This empirical case study aims to identify how graduate student women mentor each other when tutoring writing and, through doing so, assert their right to belong in the academy. Much existing literature on feminist mentoring emphasizes the need for better mentoring for women, whether in work or school environments, in current or future faculty…

Ergun, Emek – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2013
This article discusses the geo-political operations of student resistance in global feminisms classrooms, a topic that is largely ignored in the feminist pedagogies literature, where a generic understanding of the feminist teacher as a white, American and/or Western, and upper-class PhD seems to dominate. Given that the number of minority faculty…

In April 2010, a series of proposed changes to the Ontario sex education curriculum for publicly-funded institutions within the province was announced.

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…

African Americans have historically championed education as a vehicle for community enrichment (Anderson "Education"; Cooper "Voice"; Giddings).

Mackinlay, Elizabeth – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2013
In this paper, the author is going to turn around and around ideas about feminist pedagogy and feminist politics in the academy in a similar way to take us to the kind of "social somewhere" of which Barone and Eisner write, to look at the same material in familiar and unusual ways--here a fiction, there a fanciful retelling of facts,…

Flannery, Kathryn – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2012
Whether teaching undergraduate or graduate classes, the author integrates lesser-known women poets as part of the inquiry, not as curiosities, but as opportunities to discover something in the "raw" as contemporaries might have done. That the author's courses focus on or include in a substantial way the work of women is important, but does not by…
