Assignment TWO â€“ Autoethnography
This assignment is meant to be a reflective space for me to consider my identities as shaped by lived experiences with race, gender, sexuality, class, ethnicity, and more.
An overriding goal for autoethnographic explorations is to help me become a trusted ally. Discrimination and historical social issues pertaining to contemporary era can trigger unanticipated responses. Those who have explored these topics in relation to their own lived experiences are more likely to be less reactive when complex, sensitive, and controversial issues surface. Through self-exploration and reflection, they position themselves as adult allies and agents of change who are present, caring, and culturally responsive to the diverse social-psychological well being of others.
? Examine my early and adult racial understanding as well as ethnic, gender and sexual orientation experiences, understandings , and behaviours
? Examine my identity in relation to my understandings of privilege and power in the context of my social, cultural, political, physical, mental, and economic identity
? Consider my responses by providing specific, written examples that reflect upon different times of my life by creating a portfolio for future reflection and introspection to document learning
Learn how to address my own strengths and challenges to:
1. tie my own personal identity development to the formation of my professional identity
2. learn how my experiences of race, gender, sexual, cultural, economic, religious, and other identification has affected my identity formation as a professional
3. initiate professionally appropriate dialogue with students and colleagues involving race, gender, sexuality, religion, cultural understanding
4. create a recognizably safe and welcoming environment for students and colleagues to individually approach me about issues of racial discrimination, gender identification, sexual orientation, (dis)ability, and sexism
5. design anti-oppressive curricular and co-curricular professional experiences that attend to individual and collective differences
