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

22 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in English and held by 3,081 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 )

11 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,271 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.

9 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and held by 699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States's deepening ethnic texture, interracial tension and conflict, and the increasing percentage of students who speak a first language other than English make multicultural education imperative in the 21st century. "Gloria Ladson-Billings and William F. Tate argue that education scholars can and must undertake work that speaks to the pressing public issues related to education. In this volume, they are joined by renowned educators who have a reputation for engaging public interests and public policy in powerful and provocative ways. Together, they address such important issues as zero-tolerance policies, language-minority students, multicultural education, school reform, teaching for social justice, educational inquiry, curriculum, assessment, and much more. This compelling collection challenges policymakers and the public to take a greater hand in creating a quality education for all students."--Publisher

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 419 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 by David Gillborn( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and held by 368 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

¡Sí se puede! : learning from a high school that beats the odds by Ursula Casanova( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the story of Cibola High School, a public school that set itself a daring goal: every one of its students would not just graduate, but would continue on to post-secondary education and Cibola High School has been meeting its goal for over 20 graduations. Opened to serve an expanding district, Cibola is located across the border from Mexico. Based on an analysis of extensive interviews and research, the author identifies and explores five critical elements associated with the success of this school: unequivocal, uncompromising high expectations; distributed, focused leadership; assertive guidance and counseling; intensive instruction for English language learners; and flexible responses to problems and development of alternative program pathways to success
The validity of National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS)/Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (INTASC) assessments for effective urban teachers : findings and implications for assessments by Gloria Ladson-Billings( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines the practice of successful urban teachers, exploring the validity of National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) and Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (INTASC) urban teacher assessments. Results from a literature review and empirical evidence indicate that successful teaching occurs when teachers and students share background and cultural experiences. Teachers who understand students' cultural attributes more readily link classroom content with student experience. Successful teachers emphasize the whole child and know their students' cultural norms. Culturally relevant teachers make demands for academic success for all students rather than making assumptions about at-risk students. They work deliberately to blur the borders between themselves and their students and help students develop counter knowledge that challenges the status quo. The NBPTS adopted a model of assessment that includes both portfolio and assessment center exercises. Currently, characteristics outlined in this paper are not well represented in NBPTS Early Adolescent/English Language Arts assessment. NBPTS assessments have been found to have an adverse impact with respect to race. In the case of INTASC, the use of assessment is quite limited, and the number of urban teachers taking the assessment has not been made available to researchers. (Contains 29 references.) (SM)
