Building bridges : the anti-racist dimensions of Holocaust education / Carole Ann Reed.
This thesis provides an overview of anti-racist education and offers one illustrative case study of anti-racist work in a classroom setting. I have divided the discussion of anti-racist education literature into two sections, a review of the more theoretical work and a review of the praxis of anti-racist education. As much of the anti-racist literature emanates from Britain, British writers are featured. However, some Canadian and American writers are also discussed. As an illustrative example of anti-racist education in a classroom I provide a case study of a curriculum Facing History and Ourselves as it was taught in a Toronto classroom. As a participant observer, I offer a detailed reconstruction of what went on in the classroom, what the students wrote in their journals as well as what was studied/discussed in the curriculum. I argue that the Facing History and Ourselves curriculum embodies both the concerns of anti-racist theoretical literature and the elements of anti-racist praxis. As such, this case study is presented as an example of good anti-racist education.
