Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to explore curricular (re)visions made over the span of two semesters to a required secondary teacher education course. Specifically, we focus on our trials and triumphs in implementing the revised curricula. Our work is guided by the following question: in what ways do preservice teachers deem the diversity-focused course curriculum as relevant to their future teaching stances/practices? Data collected illuminated the complexities of disrupting hegemonic understandings and performances of education. Some of the data indicated that preservice teachers deemed the diversity-focused course curriculum as relevant to and connected with their future teaching stances/practices. Other data highlighted that some preservice teachers’ struggled with making sense of their future teaching practices in relation to issues of oppression and privilege, while other preservice teachers were resistant.
