Microaggressions Across the Great Divide: High-Stakes Written Assessments, the Threat of Stereotype and Hidden Curriculum
by Mark Pierce
Given an existential grounding in marketing and media through forays into the field of entertainment, while yet teaching, Mark Pierce has written a non-fiction book useful in multicultural education forums and classrooms. Microagressions Across the Great Divide delves into the inequities of black students finding a stronghold within school curriculum and popular culture while gaining a viable education, and also offers solutions in how to approach changing that forecast. Mark Pierce has a dozen years experience in secondary education from the Midwest to California. He has been a disciplinary dean, an assistant principal, and was formerly a correctional officer. Pierce holds two advanced degrees, both of them Master's (Education and English). The author is also an independent filmmaker (Moon Creek Cemetery), and actor (Young and the Restless, Little Children) as well as an educational consultant in his own company. He lives in California with his wife, Corinne.(2011, paperback, 98 pages)
