PhD students Kimberly Ransom and Tonya Kneff-Chang discuss co-teaching for StoryCorps


PhD candidates Kimberly Ransom and Tonya Kneff-Chang conversed about their co-teaching experience in EDUC 790 during a Bicentennial StoryCorps recording session. As women of different cultural backgrounds, they discussed the ways in which they addressed race and privilege in the classroom.

Reflecting on what they learned through their shared experience, Ransom explains that she learned to “be fearless” and Kneff-Chang explains that she grew as an instructor when she took the time to collaborate and reflect with her colleagues outside of their classroom. 

In celebration of the University of Michigan’s Bicentennial, the U-M Library partnered with the national oral history organization StoryCorps to record and preserve stories from our community. During the Fall Festival Bicentennial Celebration, participants had conversations with friends, classmates, family members and colleagues about meaningful experiences at U-M. These stories, presented and curated by the U-M Library in collaboration with StoryCorps, capture the essence of the U-M’s past and present.
