Another Spanner in the Works: Challenging Prejudice and Racism in Mainly White Schools
This book explores how teachers can challenge attitudes and work towards helping children in elementary schools develop skills such as acceptance, respect for diversity and openness and build an understanding of interdependence. Based on examples of good practice from mainly all white schools, it highlights the importance of attitude change within the context of mistrust of cultures seen to be 'other'. The approaches and methods discussed in the case studies are relevant in classroom situations in schools that are not ethnically diverse.
The book moves on from the acclaimed "Spanner in the Works," produced in predominantly White Cumbria, in the UK., and published by Trentham ten years ago, to take account of new ideas and a new global scenario. It offers a mix of stories of effective practice in White schools, and practical sections on, for instance, uncovering the attitudes held by teachers, superintendants, support staff and children and their perceptions of other countries. Like its predecessor, it will have relevance in White areas far beyond its locality of origin.
