Two respected scholars in teaching for social justice have gathered teachers from across the country to describe rich examples of extraordinary practice. This collection showcases the professional experience and wisdom of classroom teachers who have been navigating standards- and test-driven teaching environments in California and New York while maintaining their vision of what teaching can be. They talk personally about their practice, their challenges, and how they learned to maintain a social and pedagogical vision for their work. This book is essential reading for new teachers who are struggling to make their teaching inspiring, creative, and culturally responsive, especially to those who are working in less than supportive environments.

This practical resource for pre- and inservice teachers examines the struggle between grassroots, culturally responsive teaching and a top-down, teach-by-the-numbers approach.
