Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for previous edition:

"Rarely does a book have the ability to capture the wide audience within the field of education; however, teachers, teacher educators, and researchers alike will find Against Common Sense a thoughtful and applicable volume." —Harvard Educational Review

"This book is an insightful and provocative must-read for all pre-service teachers, teacher educators, in-service teachers, and graduate students implementing teacher education programs. Too bad it wasn't written sooner." —Radical Teacher
