The Position(ality) of the Justice-Oriented Citizenship Educator

Students and educators are diverse in diverse ways. Each has a cultural lens through which they perceive, interpret, and respond to self, others, life, and learning. This lens is shaped by life experiences as well as the social construction of identity factors such as gender, race, language, culture, religion, age, and physical ability. As a result of these factors and the value assigned to each, each person has experienced and continues to experience different combinations of advantages and disadvantages, opportunities and barriers, privilege and marginalization.
