Such a great question; thank you for raising it Neihan. … I’ll think about it more now as I certainly don’t have an answer.

Thank you for sharing this, Neihan. I love learning about concepts like this in other languages.

One example of not constructive texts widely available in social media is the “OK Boomer” meme that implies Boomers are ‘out of touch’ have mortgaged the future (financially and climate wise), refuse to retire, and are tech-incompetent. Millennials are stereotyped as fragile (expecting “participation trophies” rather than rewards for winning), work-averse, complainers (about student loans debt), job hoppers, and addicted to social media. This sort of stereotypical characterization makes it harder for people to see, hear and respect each other as individuals.

I appreciate your words of encouragement. Being a preservice teacher, it’s hard to gauge what one knows and doesn’t know, vis a vis future students.

Antonio, this is a great idea, especially a code of ethics that is co-created by teachers and students.

During my first semester teaching at the university level, my supervisor made the following statement to me: “Antonio, you have more knowledge and experience than these undergraduate students than you think. Knowing this, teach them with confidence.” Although all of us, including our professor, want to grow in our knowledge as consumers and producers, we are already critical and savvy enough consumers and producers to teach and interact with our students. Your hesitancy may stem from your healthy desire to grow so much more in your skills and knowledge to be the best teacher you can be for your students.

One of the first tasks we have in countering “unproductive narratives” is to explain to people how their narratives are unproductive. I employ critical theory to support my explanations and to buttress my arguments against their narratives. One of the primary tenets of critical race theory is to supply counternarratives to these unproductive narratives. For critical race theorists, these counternarratives are valuable vehicles for disempowering unproductive narratives. I assert that when we allow these unproductive narratives to go unchallenged, we empower them.

True. And sometimes we just don’t know what those hidden agendas are!

If we could just teach people how to genuinely “respect” each other…
We have a beautiful concept here called لِتَعَارَفُو (li-taa-ra-fu = “to get to know each other” in the Arabic language). It basically highlights that the fact that we are very “different” necessitates that we should make collaborative efforts to familiarize ourselves with each other. From this standpoint, I see “human difference” from a very different perspective. Difference, to me, simply means an opportunity for connection!
