The late Murray Levin was a lecturer in politics at the Harvard Extension School and professor emeritus of political science at Boston University. He appeared on ABC’s Nightline, CBS, NBC, and PBS, and is the author of The Alienated Voter and Kennedy Campaigning.Review:
Murray Levin starts with a brilliant idea--to probe the political and social thought of African-American and Latino teenagers who are not supposed to have such thoughts--and fulfills it. The result is totally compelling, an education for the reader. (Zinn, Howard)
With disarming honesty, Murray Levin shares what he learned about his students, as well as what they managed to teach him. These young people are a wonder, sometimes inchoate, often sharply insightful and gloriously poetic. Levin is a wonder, too, because he found within himself the warmth, imagination, and intelligence to figure out how to speak to them. (Piven, Frances Fox)
In this passionate, provocative, and important book, Murray Levin provides an imaginative and workable way of reaching the students that our educational system is failing. Written with warmth, humor, and extraordinary insight, Teach Me! is a book that will change the way teachers think. (Doris Kearns Goodwin)
