The original edition of Rethinking Our Classrooms, published in 1994, sold over 160,000 copies and has been used by teachers and teacher educators throughout the United States and the world. This new edition of the book, along with the most popular articles from the original edition, contains some of the best classroom writing we've published over the past five years, as well as completely updated resource sections and a new "Beyond the Classroom" chapter. There are new essays on science and environmental education, immigration and language, military recruitment, early childhood education, teaching about the world through mathematics, and gay and lesbian issues. Nowhere is the connection between critical teaching and effective classroom practice clearer or more accessible. A great resource for new and veteran K-12 teachers, as well as teacher education and staff development programs.

What People Are Saying

Jonathan Kozol
"Terrific! A dynamite collection packed with moral energy, but also very, very useful. Even more powerful, with even richer material, than the original edition. Buy hundreds of copies for your students, fellow teachers, and principals. Give some to your school board members. This is political pedagogy of the gutsy kind we almost never see these days."--(Jonathan Kozol, Author of Savage Inequalities and The Shame of the Nation)
Sonia Nieto
"A treasure trove of insights, creative activities, and valuable resources for the critical classroom, Rethinking Our Classrooms will help teachers wrestle with many of the issues we face in this new millennium from racism and gender identity to immigration phobia, global warming and the testing craze. Inspired stories of real-life classrooms make this new edition of Rethinking Our Classrooms better than ever!"--(Sonia Nieto, Professor Emerita, University of Massachusetts, Amherst)
