Teaching Teachers to Teach Queerly

ByKEVIN K. KUMASHIRO

I write this chapter as a new academic year gets underway. Three weeks into the fall and I am still struggling to learn the names of the dozens of prospective teachers in my undergraduate, introductory course on urban education. I love teaching this course, perhaps because my attempts at troubling their assumptions and perspectives on what schools should and could look like often lead to my own awakenings.
