hi there, i’m mical bf. i’m a white, mixed-class, genderqueer from the pacific northwest. this blog is exclusively for hosting selected pieces from my undergrad senior project in critical pedagogy and creative writing. the first part of the project contains autobiographical pieces exploring my various identities, typically in relation to education. the second part is comprised of a late elementary/early middle school curricular unit on socially constructed identity and systemic oppression i developed, along with the stories of implementing it. this lesson is my favorite…
i hope educators may find the stories and tools detailed here useful in helping their classroom (or any educational endeavor) critically examine systemic oppression, create a safer space for marginalized students, and more fully realize the liberatory potential inherent in education.
