Prof. De Rosales has been teaching at CCSF since 2017

I understand that my role as a teacher is to be the facilitator of learning in the classroom, not the focal point of instruction. Moreover, it is important for students to discover knowledge on their own since each young person is unique, having their own learning styles and cultural experiences. Therefore, I have to create a learning environment that is engaging, diverse, comfortable, and structured. With this approach, I hope to foster a sense of critical awareness within the students I teach as they actively participate in deciphering course content. Ultimately, working in collaboration with my students to recognize relatable themes in the course literature promotes self-discovery.

Having a foundation in Catholic Social Teaching along with teaching in a Catholic school that stresses educational equity and social justice, my approach to examining history is to focus on the voices of the marginalized. Pedagogically, Paolo Friere’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed is a call to action that has guided many educators who strive for justice in student communities. His call to reject the “banking system” of education in favor of “problem posing” is key in awakening critical thinking within students. My experience in teaching urban youth reinforces my belief that students will be empowered when they approach the past as a problem that needs to be solved as it relates to today’s realities.

Students can problematize the past by examining injustices constructed by the status quo, and discovering lost voices obscured by hegemonic narratives. Historical texts including both primary and secondary sources are the core of my courses, but these texts are also supported by a variety of media forms that showcase different viewpoints and perspectives.

Moreover, I implement diversified instruction in the classroom to include lectures with visual aids, student-led group discussions, project-based activities, film and literature critiques, and online research. I also strive to incorporate components of historical thinking in my teaching, such as looking at multiple accounts and perspectives, analyzing primary documents, sourcing, contextualizing, and corroborating posed claims. Furthermore, Document Based Questions (DBQ's) are critical evaluation tools that I employ in measuring a students’ ability to synthesize content and create narratives that seek to solve the problems of the past. The application of DBQ's in course instruction help students to view their research and writings as contributions to social justice movements.
In sum, my task as an educator is to facilitate a learning environment that challenges students to recognize reoccurring themes in history in terms of progress and oppression, while at the same time providing support for the learning needs of all young people. This pedagogical approach allows students to be liberated from the oppression of thinking that the study of history exists merely as a recollection of dates and names to be banked away. Instead, students are free to explore the past as a "problem" in need of focused attention and critical thinking.

Cesar Chavez states that "Students mush have initiative; they should not be mere imitators. They must learn to think and act for themselves and be free." Martin Luther King Jr. states that "The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education." My hope is that in my classrooms I facilitate that "thinking and acting" that leads them to be peacemakers.
