Abstract

We all have stories-beautiful and ugly stories-neat ending and never ending stories. When personal narratives, the stories that come closest to the human ex- perience, are used as pedagogy, they can be windows offering views of different worlds and people. In this way, personal narratives become lanterns that illumi- nate the real and imagined fences that divide us as human beings. The intention of this article is to give an account of both how and why I use personal narrative as a pedagogical method to teach diversity and social justice.
