More About This Textbook

Editorial Reviews

Where I'm From sets the theme for this collection of essays, student poems, and other writings about teaching to and learning from students. People do not all come from the same place, they are not on the same journey in life, nor do they all have the same goals. Listening to students and understanding what experiences and environment shape their background always has been the baseline of fine teaching. For those educators who must stretch to empathize with others or simply to recognize and appreciate the cultural differences that might explain misunderstandings, this book will help. One must come to understand that black adults evaluate a group of essays differently from nonblacks. If the suggestions about teaching a unit on Hawaii seem angry and unfair, the reader will become aware that paradise rests on the backs of native Hawaiians. A soccer ball or baseball leads to discussions about child labor from Pakistan to Haiti. Among the final chapters, One Size Fits Few is about teaching to every student. Each young person is from a unique, valued place in life from which they will learn. Because contributors to the book also come from varied experiences, there are bound to be some differences of opinion among educators. Every entry, however, makes the reader think about his or her own approach to the topic. A collection of many thoughts, this book is worthwhile reading for every teacher, from whatever place he or she might be. Index. Illus. Photos. Biblio. 2001, Rethinking Schools Ltd., 240p,
