Overview

Once again, in this expanded Second Edition, Gary Howard outlines what good teachers know, what they do, and how they embrace culturally responsive teaching. Howard brings his bestselling book completely up to date with today’s school reform efforts and includes a new introduction and a new chapter that speak directly to current issues such as closing the achievement gap, and to recent legislation such as No Child Left Behind. With our nation’s student population becoming ever more diverse, and teachers remaining largely White, this book is now more important than ever. A must-read in universities and school systems throughout the country, We Can’t Teach What We Don’t Know continues to facilitate and deepen the discussion of race and social justice in education


Gary R. Howard is president and founder of the REACH Center for Multicultural Education in Seattle, Washington. He travels widely throughout the United States delivering keynote speeches and workshops addressing issues of race, justice, educational reform, and social transformation.


Critical Acclaim for We Can’t Teach What We Don’t Know!


"More teachers need to read this book, more schools need to make sure it is in their libraries, and more schools of education need to include it in their reading lists."

—From the Foreword by Sonia Nieto, University of Massachusetts at Amherst


“Gary Howard explains why teachers mustn't ‘fake it,’ but must acquire the knowledge, skills, and disposition to successfully teach all students. A great book for teacher-candidates and experienced teachers.”

Carl A. Grant, Hoefs-Bascom Professor, University of Wisconsin-Madison


"Offers a healing vision for the future of education in pluralistic nations."

Rethinking Schools


"An indispensable resource for anyone struggling to understand the role that Whites play in multicultural education."

Teaching Tolerance


"This work clearly deserves the enthusiastic praise it receives from major multicultural thinkers such as James Banks, Sonia Nieto, and Christine Sleeter."

Journal of Moral Education


“A wake-up call for those suffering from apathy and a confirmation for those who want to continue to serve as change agents in American society."

Journal of Negro Education


"An excellent guide for anyone who wants to have a better understanding of how to lead and live in an increasingly multicultural, multiracial world."

    This books RIPS into any white teachers. This man spews garbage

    This books RIPS into any white teachers. This man spews garbage based on his "visions" he had in the 1970's. Teachers are being FORCED to read this and repent their racist methods of teaching. This book is perfect for a fire when you've run out of wood. Unfortunately there was no rating lower than a one star. Trust me taking any time to read his reverse racist trash will infuriate you.

    Highly Recommended - you must check it out!!

    This book is awesome! I think that anyone should read it but anyone in the education field should absolutely read.

    It show the importance of race, social class, and status. It helps to open people's eyes to see that their is a problem with the educational system and the population at large and that we need to o something about.
