Crit­i­cal White­ness in Ped­a­gog­i­cal Prac­tice -​

how to deal with one’s own role as a white teacher in a critical perspective on racism? Background text for a workshop

The paper aims to encourage a critical reflection on the privileged position of the white educational worker, and for this undertaking, provides some basic understandings and thoughts on racism and on critical educational practices dealing with racism. What is racism, how is it produced and how am I as a white teacher involved? (How) can I, as white, practice a critique of racism in my classes, and which questions/problems emerge with this aim? Complementary to the text, a tool for workshops – a list of white privileges – is available for download.
