Travel is a powerful pedagogical tool for critical and feminist teachers, as it leads to learning that is uniquely interactive, collective, and transformative.

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.

She certainly was not convinced she wanted…
