Overview

Reason to Teach: Creating Classrooms of Dignity and Hope: The Power of the Democratic Way / Edition 1

A Reason to Teach is written for teachers who want to bring democratic teaching to their classrooms and schools. The book not only explains why teachers should choose this point of view, but tells how, offering a wide range of practical resources for classrooms and schools at all levels.

All ideas are illustrated with vibrant examples from real classrooms around the country, including an extended case study of how one teacher and his students in a large city organized their curriculum around the goal of getting a new school for their neighborhood.

Eminently practical and thoroughly principled, A Reason to Teachshows the how, the why, and the power of the democratic way.
