Virtual Classroom Visit: Sabina Vaught, Critical Race Theory

These videos are part of an ongoing project by Phil Gay and David Hammer called Student Centered Teaching at Tufts. Videographers visit classes around campus to record faculty members in the process of teaching in their classrooms, and to hear each faculty member’s reflections afterward, as they observe themselves interacting with students.

Sabina Vaught’s Spring 2015 class on Critical Race Theory examined legal and educational theory and practice across a range of contexts and issues. In this class meeting, Professor Vaught guides undergraduate and graduate students in small group discussions as they engage complex questions of race and schooling as they operate in larger contexts of legal rights. Students are discussing ideas and dilemmas from readings that include TribalCrit, LatCrit, and Vaught’s own work..
