Teaching with Tension by Lee Bebout (Editor)Teaching with Tension is a collection of seventeen original essays that address the extent to which attitudes about race, impacted by the current political moment in the United States, have produced pedagogical challenges for professors in the humanities. As a flashpoint, this current political moment is defined by the visibility of the country's first black president, the election of his successor, whose presidency has been associated with an increased visibility of the alt-right, and the emergence of the neoliberal university. Together these social currents shape the tensions with which we teach. Drawing together personal reflection, pedagogical strategies, and critical theory, Teaching with Tension offers concrete examinations that will foster student learning. The essays are organized into three thematic sections: "Teaching in Times and Places of Struggle" examines the dynamics of teaching race during the current moment, marked by neoconservative politics and twenty-first century freedom struggles. "Teaching in the Neoliberal University" focuses on how pressures and exigencies of neoliberalism (such as individualism, customer-service models of education, and online courses) impact the way in which race is taught and conceptualized in college classes. The final section, "Teaching How to Read Race and (Counter)Narratives," homes in on direct strategies used to historicize race in classrooms comprised of millennials who grapple with race neutral ideologies. Taken together, these sections and their constitutive essays offer rich and fruitful insight into the complex dynamics of contemporary race and ethnic studies education.

Critical intersections in contemporary curriculum and pedagogy by Laura M. Jewett, editor.; Freyca Calderon-Berumen, editor.; Miryam Espinosa-Dulanto, editor."This volume offers a collection of scholarship that extends curricular conversations, crosses borders of praxis, and expands democratic, critical and aesthetic imaginaries- toward the ends of lending momentum to the ever-present and wide-open question: What is to be done-- in terms of curriculum and pedagogy-- in p-12 schools, in teacher education and other higher education contexts, in communities, as well as within our own lives as teachers, leaders and learners? These chapters represent perspectives from curriculum workers/teachers/scholars/activists across theoretical landscapes and spanning a diversity of positionalities within critical intersections of power and privilege as they relate to identity, culture and curriculum as well as to social justice, schools and society"
