Crossing Boundaries: A Brown & White Interrogation of Race and Social Class

Abstract: As graduate students in the Master of Education program at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology, were were introduced to a repertoire of learning streams, one of which examined the social and cultural dimensions of teaching, learning, and knowledge. The following collaboration is a recollection of our life experiences; a very honest autobiographical account of our respective and markedly different racial contexts, as well as a discussion of our similar middle-class social backgrounds, and how the combination of these factors has influenced our academic achievements and our personal identities. Our hope is that readers recognize the growth in our self-awareness and ultimately understand how integral this process has been in our ability to be well rounded and effective educators.
