The Border Crosser's Pocketbook: A Guide to Engaged Pedagogy in After School Arts 

The questions that sparked this research were developed after spending time working internationally and locally with youth in after school arts programs. These inquiries aim to critically examine the way after school arts programs are run in relation to the culturally and racially diverse communities they serve, discuss how these methods engage with the field of arts education as a whole, and ultimately provide practical approaches, strategies, and tools that educators can implement in these programs. Written from the perspective of a white, female educator who works in racially diverse learning spaces, this project is aimed at enabling educators in similar circumstances to overcome the barriers presented by racial and cultural differences in the after school arts classroom.
