My Self Study: A Graphic Narrative

Abstract

This self-study describes elements of my practice including the origins of my thinking, self-imposed barriers to talking about my practice, the connections of my practice to culturally sustaining pedagogy, transformation in my practice related to microteaching, my underlying conceptual framework, and my ongoing conversion into being an anti-racist practitioner. My story is an attempt to bring my practice into the light with critical friends. The decision to communicate in graphic narrative was consequential for me because I have been drawing longer than I have been writing, and the description of my self-study and the mode of expression are intimately linked. Drawing is my preferred mode of communication, a process I use to grasp what I read, and how I develop my thinking, yet, except in very limited ways, I have not used my art to communicate to the profession until now.
