Jakey Toor en Instagram: “Sorting, Sifting, and Purging in SD; Fascinating to go through all my old books, research, notes, and papers 📚📖📝—- Lisa Delpit was, and…”
"Lisa Delpit was, and still is, one of my favorite education theorists & authors. In fact, a few years ago, while working with a coach, I realized that part of what I want for the field of education is to see more sociology & anthropology research utilized in credentialing programs, as well as in-house professional developments. I feel lucky to have been introduced to Delpit’s work early on in my own program, which I have to say, especially now in retrospect, was top notch. “In her groundbreaking 1988 essay “The Silenced Dialogue: Power and Pedagogy in Educating Other People’s Children,” the elementary school teacher cum theorist Lisa Delpit dismantled some of the pieties of progressive education. Deliberately unstructured teaching strategies like “whole language,” “open classrooms,” and “process, not product” were putting poor, non-white children at an even greater disadvantage in school and beyond...” - The Nation: An interview with Lisa Delpit on educating “Other People’s Children’”."

We project our own experiences onto our students
"So this is the perspective I’m coming from. There is no should in it, there is no inherent reverence for the adult / teacher /system of schooling, and I realize this world view permeates my teaching. It all comes down to a simple question for me: Is what this person is saying / doing worth my time and attention? I ask myself this questions with regard to every person in my life and I think students should do the same. SO, if I’m struggling with a class, I figure that what I’m teaching them isn’t worth it for them.  Or the way I’m delivering it is not worthy of respect based on their world views. If this is the case, it’s my job as a teacher to find something that works for and with them. It’s very simple.  I don’t go toe to toe with students if I feel like they are being disrespectful because I can’t do it authentically if I myself don’t buy into the idea that they need to respect me just because I’m their teacher…"
