Very interesting piece here by Dr. Christine Sleeter titled, "White people in Ethnic Studies." It offers much food for thought, especially for the Ethnic Studies classroom. The readings on white ethnicity are certain worthwhile and informative. One of my favorite texts from the past was by Stephen Steinberg.
Do read this piece in its entirety and do visit her website. Dr. Sleeter, a nationally-renowned scholar and friend, who has spent decades researching Ethnic Studies and her suggestions for the classroom are more than helpful.
