    An excellent guide for teachers!

    This fascinating book takes the standard idea of an achievement gap and replaces it with the much more helpful concept of an opportunity gap which teachers can work to combat. It's full of classroom-specific suggestions which cover a variety of disciplines and situations. The helpful summaries, tables of recommendation and reflection questions designed for teachers make it easy to transfer the theory to one's own classroom in practice, and the broad approach of the different case studies used means that there is something for everyone. As an educator, it is difficult to find books on education that present theory in such a way that it can actually be used in a classroom. Milner's work does just that. His case studies of real teachers in real classrooms frame his excellent theory with examples from actual practice that are incredibly helpful. Additionally, the book includes subjects other than the humanities. As a math teacher, I have repeatedly opened books on this topic only to discover that the only examples they included were for, say, an English class. There are enough disciplines represented here that any teacher can use the material, and the extremely understandable writing makes this an ideal work to have on your shelf.
