Recognition, Responsibility, and Risk: Pre-service Teachers’ Framing and Reframing of Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Social Justice Issues
This article analyzes the ways pre-service teachers (PST) conceptualize justice to further understand how teacher educators might communicate ideas about LGB inclusion to their students and understand the complexities of enacting a social justice framework for LGB issues. It utilizes Fraser’s theory of justice to consider curricular change. The findings reveal that PSTs viewed homophobia as an individual value that negatively affected students’ lives, and viewed adults as being primary perpetuators of homophobia. The authors argue that this occurs because sexuality injustice is framed through homophobia, not heteronormativity. The use of Fraser’s framework illustrates the different natures of justice-oriented claims posed by marginalized groups. It also suggests ways for teacher educators to consider curriculum beyond homophobia and individual protections to greater exploration of structure and transformational approaches.

This article examines the gap between the practicesthat beginning teachers learn in university teacher preparation courses and those they reencounter in the K-12 classrooms in which they learn to teach. The authors describe the theory of horizontal expertise and how its use can address the problem. They then identify three processes essential to the development of horizontal expertise: the exchange of tools, the negotiation of social languages, and argumentation.
