Holler If You Hear Me: The Education of a Teacher and His Students, 2nd Edition / Edition 2
In this time of narrowed curricula and high-stakes accountability, Gregory Michie's tales of struggle and triumph are as relevant as ever. Since it was first published in 1999, Holler has become essential reading for new and seasoned teachers alike, and an inspiring read for many others. Weaving back and forth between Michie's awakening as a teacher and the first-person stories of his students, this highly acclaimed book paints an intimate and compassionate portrait of teaching and learning in urban America. While the popular notion of what it's like to teach in city schools is dominated by horror stories and hero tales, Michie and his students reside somewhere in between these extremes-"between the miracles and the metal detectors."
