Gregory Michie's first bestseller, Holler If You Hear Me, put him on the map as a compelling and passionate voice in urban education. In his new book, Michie turns his attention to young teachers of color, and once again provides readers with a unique and penetrating look inside public school classrooms. Featuring portraits of five young teachers (two African Americans, two Latinas, and one Asian American) who are "working for change," Michie weaves the teachers' powerful voices with classroom vignettes and his own experiences. Along the way, he examines what motivates and sustains these teachers, as well as what they see as the challenges and possibilities of public education.\

Editorial Reviews

Diversity is a common "buzz" word in many different educational circles. How does one teach diversity? How can one teach for change? What are educators discussing, teaching, or learning in urban schools as opposed to rural/suburban schools? Michie attempts to answer some of these burning questions in his latest book. Comprised of five teachers' stories from multi-ethnic backgrounds, the book shows how these educators deal with multiculturalism and diversity on a daily basis. Almost every teacher profiled works with poor, urban students in the Chicago area. The constant theme of change runs throughout the book. The teachers discuss how they want to influence their students and how they want their students to push the envelope. They talk about and integrate multicultural issues into their lessons because the topics are important to the students. The teachers in this book are adamant about helping and guiding their students to a better understanding of their cultures and the stereotypes surrounding them. Even though Michie is focusing on urban schools in his book, all teachers should take a look at these stories. The face of education is changing on a daily basis and it is becoming more multicultural at every step. These women face many challenges including limited resources, over-crowded classrooms, and indifferent administrators. Teachers in urban settings will probably be able to relate to many of these problems; however, all teachers should read these stories for their hopeful message. All teachers will benefit from reading this book. 2005, Teachers College Press, 224p.; Photos. Appendix., pb. Ages adult professional.
