Description - Dismantling Educational Sexism through Teacher Education: Engaging Preservice Teachers in an Anti-Sexism Curriculum by Kimberly J. Pfeifer

This book details the development and impacts of anti-sexism professional development (PD) workshops for preservice teachers.

Designed to help teacher candidates recognize gender inequity and think more deeply about their role as anti-sexist educators, Dismantling Educational Sexism through Teacher Education explores how workshops can respond directly to issues manifesting in US schooling such as misrepresentation, androcentric pedagogy, and sex(ual/ist) harassment using an intersectional approach. By documenting participants' learning, the text offers valuable insight into how teacher candidates view their role in combatting sexism and illustrates how an anti-sexism curriculum can positively impact on educators' beliefs, discourses, and teaching practices.

This volume will be a valuable resource for researchers and scholars involved in teacher education and issues of gender equity more broadly, as well as teacher educators seeking a theoretical framework for anti-sexism trainings.
