Culturally Relevant Pedagogy: Clashes and Confrontationsby Lisa Scherff (Editor), Karen Spector (Editor), Dawn Abt-Perkins (Contribution by), Ruth Balf (Contribution by), Matthew Brown (Contribution by)
The authors in this edited volume reflect on their experiences with culturally relevant pedagogy_as students, as teachers, as researchers_and how these experiences were often at odds with their backgrounds and/or expectations. Each of the authors speaks to the complexity and difficulty in attempting to address students' cultures, create learning experiences with relevance to their lives and experiences, and enact pedagogies that promote academic achievement while honoring students. At the same time, every author shows the clashes and confrontations that can arise between and among students, teachers, parents, administrators, and educational policies.
