Abstract

     In this paper I present an academic service-learning course that implements autoethnographic action by engaging students in an interpretive dialogue with someone who has experienced discrimination of some kind in his/her life. I suggest considering autoethnography as an optional critical pedagogy for educating teachers in a community characterized by a climate of discrimination.
