I have spent most of my academic career examining perspectives that are missing from curriculum in schools and searching for ways to increase perspectives in order to make curriculum more inclusive and critically democratic (e.g., Camicia, 2007, 2012; Camicia & Bayon, 2012; Camicia & Franklin, 2010; Camicia & Saavedra, 2009). My interest in this area is a product of my positionality and experiences. As illustrated in previous chapters, my positionalities and experiences serve as resources for inclusive curriculum because they provide narratives and counternarratives that challenge the oppression of ‘common sense’ in curriculum.
