This volume brings together the expert and timely writings of educational practitioners and researchers struggling to reform their classrooms to reach and teach diverse student populations. The contributors describe the importance of bringing one's own identity, culture, and history to discussions with disenfranchised communities. This book brings the reader into the classroom, where innovative teachers and researchers describe the transformative potential of personal experience when it is properly integrated into the learning environment. The balance between theory and practice makes Shifting Histories a valuable resource for teachers, school administrators, and policymakers alike.
