Reaching Within: White Teachers Interrogating Whiteness Through Professional Learning Communities
Mann, Dawn L

2016, Doctor of Philosophy, Miami University, Educational Leadership.
This dissertation is a qualitative study on how White teachers at a suburban, Midwestern school district interpret their Whiteness through a professional learning community. The study was designed using a hybrid professional learning community over ten weeks. The participants responded to various written online prompts using a discussion board along with two face-to-face group meetings. The prompts were designed to generate critical self-reflection surrounding White racial identity and privilege. Gary Howard’s White orientation model was used as a framework to discuss the fluidity of each participant’s interrogation of their Whiteness. The dissertation also discusses limitations to the study and implications for future research.
