Description

Winner of the Richard Meade Award for Research in English Education

This book takes readers inside the hallways and classrooms of Addison High and into the homes and neighborhoods of its Latino students; it explores the history and current socioeconomic dynamics of the surrounding community; and it draws important connections between specific instances of teaching and learning and the broader contexts of educating culturally and linguistically diverse students. The framework set forth by the author challenges educators to draw on an awareness of the ethical complexities of their work and to develop the disposition of a “citizen teacher” dedicated to fostering in all students the ability to envision, create, and participate in a more humane and democratic society.

387 pp. 2001. Grades 9-College. ISBN 0-8141-2971-4.
