9781412980609: Urban Teaching in America: Theory, Research, and Practice in K-12 Classrooms

Urban Teaching in America: Theory, Research, and Practice in K-12 Classrooms is a brief yet comprehensive overview of urban teaching. Undergraduate and graduate students who are new to the urban context will develop a deeper understanding of the urban teaching environment and the challenges and opportunities they can expect to face while teaching in it. The authors have combined the work of urban education theorists, researchers, and practitioners to demonstrate that urban students bring many resources to their learning environment and can often serve as educators to the teachers themselves. Readers will feel prepared to challenge, rather than maintain, the status quo after reading this book.

Review:

“I LOVE the integration of theory and practice!” (Brigid Beaubien)

“It has a strong research focus while it simultaneously speaks to the heart and beliefs of preservice and inservice teachers. This ability to simultaneously engage readers intellectually and emotionally sets this text apart from others.” (Amanda Smith)

“...a very strong book with an amazing ability to pull together vast amounts of information in concise and precise ways and make it readable and practical for preservice teachers.” (Janna Jackson-Kellinger)
