The dreamkeepers : successful teachers of African American children by Gloria Ladson-Billings( Book )

15 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in English and held by 1,749 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quality education remains an elusive dream for most African American children. Historically, they have been denied schooling, subject to separate and unequal education, and forced into unsafe, unhealthy, substandard schools. In The Dreamkeepers, Gloria Ladson-Billings explores the positive signs for the future. Who are the successful teachers of African American students? What do they do? And how can we learn from them? Her portraits of eight exemplary teachers who differ in personal style and methods but share an approach to teaching that affirms and strengthens cultural identity are inspiring and full of hope. Written in three voices - that of an African American scholar and researcher, a teacher, and a parent and active community member - this book is a mixture of scholarship and storytelling. Ladson-Billings' portraits, interwoven with personal reflections, challenge readers to envision intellectually rigorous and culturally relevant classrooms that have the power to improve the lives of not just African American students but all children

Dictionary of multicultural education by Carl A Grant( Book )

15 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 897 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The focus of this dictionary is the meanings and perspectives of various terms that are used in multicultural education. Contributors have often addressed the literal meanings of words and terms as well as contextual meanings and examples that helped create those meanings. Like other dictionaries, this one is arranged alphabetically, but it goes beyond ordinary dictionaries in the depth of its concern with multicultural education and diversity. Some entries define commonly used terms. Others are court cases and legal precedents, while still others are methodological and theoretical-conceptual entries. Biographical sketches are not included, since a dictionary of this scope and size could not do justice to the many people who have contributed to multicultural education. Nor are terms that describe groups of people included, although the intellectual traditions that have emerged from the struggles of these people have been defined. Standardization of the vocabulary of multicultural education is necessary for communication within the academy and across the many political and social boundaries that must be spanned to make multicultural education a reality.

High schools, race, and America's future : what students can teach us about morality, diversity, and community by Lawrence A Blum( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book the author offers an account of a rigorous high school course on race and racism. Set in a racially, ethnically, and economically diverse high school, the book chronicles students' engagement with one another, with a rich and challenging academic curriculum, and with questions that relate powerfully to their daily lives. The author, a moral philosopher whose work focuses on issues of race, reflects on the challenges and surprises encountered in teaching; the unexpected turns in conversation, the refreshing directness of students' questions, the "aha" moments and the awkward ones, and the paradoxes of his own role as a white college professor teaching in a multiracial high school classroom. This book provides a resource for those who want to teach students to think deeply and talk productively about race
Foundations of critical race theory in education( Book )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The emergence of Critical Race Theory (CRT) marked an important point in the history of racial politics in the legal academy and the broader conversation about race and racism in the United States. More recently, CRT has proven to be an important analytical tool in the field of education, offering critical perspectives on race and the causes, consequences, and manifestations of race, racism, inequality, and the dynamics of power and privilege in schooling. This groundbreaking anthology is the first to pull together both the foundational writings in the field and more recent scholarship on the cultural and racial politics of schooling. A comprehensive introduction provides an overview of the history and tenets of CRT in education. Each section then seeks to explicate idiological contestation of race in education and to create new, alternative accounts. In so doing, this landmark publication not only documents the progress to date of the CRT movement, it acts to further spur developments in education
