About the Author:

Carl A. Grant is Hoefs-Bascom Professor of teacher education in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Wisconsin--Madison. His work for more than thirty years has been with teachers and administrators who commit to improve students' achievement, enrich their knowledge and skill set in multicultural social justice, culturally responsive curriculum development, and teaching. He has written several books and many articles for teachers that address student achievement, curriculum development, teaching strategies, and parent-teacher engagement.

Review:

"The foundation of this work is helping individuals understand themselves racially and how racism works institutionally, and how we can build on this knowledge to create culturally responsive pedagogy. The hundreds of teachers and principals we work with will find this book extremely helpful."--Peter T. Wilson, President (02/10/2009)

"Teach! Change! Empower! takes the concepts of diversity and change which are often complex, abstract, confusing, and not salient to many teachers who struggle with the meaning of the concepts in actual classroom practices and uses them as a framework for something that is very real to teachers: the achievement gap. This connection both increases salience to the teacher and gives him or her a greater motivation for examining and understanding the impact of diversity and change."--Barbara Heuberger Rose, Associate Professor (02/10/2009)"

"This book is easy to read and holds the reader's attention. The tools for self assessment and interactive discussion are outstanding. Readers are challenged to think about themselves and their role in addressing achievement gaps in a non-blaming manner. Carl Grant does an outstanding job of incorporating the work of a number of researchers in a way that readers easily see the connectionsbetween the researcher's work and the achievement gap."--Maria Whittemore, Minority Achievement Coordinator (02/10/2009)"
