Abstract: This essay explores what it takes to work towards a future of equitable pedagogy and schooling through the presentation of a short ethnographic play entitled The Card (2004). The play is one of five critical performed ethnographies I have written to engage pre-service teacher education students in thinking about social justice in education. The essay begins with a discussion of how critical performed ethnography works as an example of “engaged pedagogy”, and the ways in which its form and content can promote anti-oppression teacher education. This discussion is followed by the presentation of the play. The Card tells the story of Roberto Rodriguez, a high school teacher who comes out as a gay man when he tries to help a student being bullied. Embedded in the ethnographic play are the kinds of social practices and beliefs needed to achieve an educational future that recognises social difference and strives for equity. Following the play, a short commentary discusses these practices and beliefs in a more explicit way. The essay concludes with a brief discussion of the questions and issues a recent performance of The Card raised for other teacher educators. This discussion allows me to examine how the play encourages readers, performers, and spectators to both recognise and respond to social difference in ways that will move schools towards a more equitable future.
