An extensive “teacher file” and resource section survey teaching tools from curricula to activist-oriented websites.

From Library Journal:

Most accessible but not limited to graduate students and faculty, this is a wide-ranging anthology of articles/readings originally published in the education serial Democracy and Education. It is an enlightening book whose topics include community building, adult literacy, empowerment, diversity education, responsibility, social action education, and writing. "Teaching for social justice" is teaching what one believes ought to be in terms of material arrangements for people in all spheres of society, i.e., reflective experiential responses leading to action. Writers represented are Michael Apple, Jonathan Kozol, Herbert Kohl, Henry Giroux, and 42 others. An extensive bibliography and a list of organizations, periodicals, web sites, and Popular Education institutes round out the text. Editors Ayers (Univ. of Illinois), Jean Anne Hunt (editor, Democracy and Education), and Therese Quinn (doctoral candidate, Univ. of Illinois) have put together a useful resource for academic collections.?Scott R.
