The phrase "teaching for social justice" is often used, but not always explained. What does it really mean to teach for social justice? What are the implications for anti-oppressive teaching across different areas of the curriculum? Drawing on his own experiences teaching diverse grades and subjects, Kevin Kumashiro examines various aspects of anti-oppressive teaching and learning in six different subject areas. Connecting practice to theory through new pedagogical elements, the revised edition of this bestselling text features:

    • A new and timely preface that considers the possibilities of anti-oppressive teaching and teaching for social justice in the face of increasing pressure from both the Right and the Left to accept neoliberal school reform policies.
    • End of chapter questions that enhance comprehension of arguments, help concretize abstract ideas into classroom practice, and encourage critique.
    • A sampling of print and online resources that will inspire students to further their social justice education

The new pedagogical components of the revised edition will offer K-12 teachers and teacher educators the tools they need to teach against their common sense assumptions and continue the evolution of social justice in education.

Review:

Praise for previous edition:

"Rarely does a book have the ability to capture the wide audience within the field of education; however, teachers, teacher educators, and researchers alike will find Against Common Sense a thoughtful and applicable volume." --Harvard Educational Review


"This book is an insightful and provocative must-read for all pre-service teachers, teacher educators, in-service teachers, and graduate students implementing teacher education programs. Too bad it wasn't written sooner."  --Radical Teacher
