Susan Sánchez-Casal and Amie A. Macdonald 18 SUS A N SÁ NCH E Z-C A S A L & A M I E A . M ACDONA L D R E A LIST P EDAGOGY A ND C RITIC A L ACCESS S TUDENTS OF C OLOR FOR By centralizing the epistemic function of identity, realist pedagogy redistributes intellectual authority in the classroom in a variety of ways that together help to create critical access for students of color.
