This article tells us what issues teachers might face in raising a social justice discussion. Author used a very convincing way to give readers solutions to problems happening in social justice discussion through talking about different teacher’s experience in teaching social justice class. Also, author has addressed the value of having social justice discussion in class. Through reading this article I understood that having such discussion, student could learn about how to use different perspective to look at oppression and bias. Moreover, they might just start to change their ideas of things along with the discussion.
This article not only just showed us how to solve issues that happens in social justice class, but also, it talks about different effective teaching methods which could help teachers to become more confident in teaching. For example, the silent moments in a discuss might just make a lot of teacher freak out. Therefore, author has deciphered that issue with an example of how to breakdown these silent moments in discussion. I really like this reading, which I think all these examples and way of teaching that author talks about can be very useful in helping my feature carrier as a teacher.
Author gives us a lot of examples about ways to face fears and solve problem, emotional issues of being a teacher, I feel like author attempt to resolve the issue through a lot of psychological point of view. In addition, I do think these teaching methods that come out from psychological point of view are very effective methods. Therefore, I start thinking maybe we all (teachers and student) should take psychology classes, especially before taking classes that involve with social justice discussion. I know that psychology class is often an elective class in the school. Should our education system just make it into a requirement class? I feel like it would be necessary to do that nowadays.
