Description - Teaching for Change; Voices of Empowerment and Transformation by Jean M. Landis

"Teaching for Change", written for pre-service and in-service teachers, is packed full of parent, student, teacher and principal voices, which are often silenced in reform initiatives. "Insider" voices of African American urban parents discuss their own theory of caring, with their perspectives on culturally responsive teaching and white teachers. African American students present their literacy perspectives, helping to shatter deficit stereotypes. Urban principals and teachers reveal how they constructed school success in a situated context. Multicultural educators tell their personal stories of self-empowerment and transformation as they work for change. Successful African American men reflect on their own educational journeys, persisting against the odds. To tie the knot, examples of culturally responsive lesson plans that have been used with middle and high school students are presented. Each chapter focuses on teaching beyond the standards for empowerment and transformation--mandates for the 21st century.
