Navigating Moments of Hesitation
Portraits of Evangelical English Language Arts Teachers

Teachers’ religious identities shape their classroom practices in varied ways. From the books they select to the relationships they build with students to the way they see their role as a teacher, teachers’ religious identities shape their sense of what is possible and impossible within classroom settings. This book examines these complex navigations through portraits of three early-career evangelical Christian teachers as they explore the tension they feel between their teaching identities and their religious identities in the setting of the U.S. public education system.

What these portraits make clear is that the prevailing assumption that religious teachers have wholly separate teaching and religious identities is an impossibility, no matter how devoutly it might be wished for, legislated, and imagined. Who are these teachers? How does their evangelical religious identity influence the way they navigate classroom spaces? How are they making sense of their own experiences as a religious person in a public school classroom?

Perfect for courses in: Diversity and Inclusion in the Classroom | Introduction to Diversity for Educators | Foundations of Teaching for Learning | Role of the Teacher in American Education | Religion and Education | Educational Foundations
