Overview

This book offers a range of conceptual and curricular resources for elementary and secondary educators as well as teacher educators interested in exploring new and innovative ways to challenge racism, classism, sexism, heterosexism, and other forms of oppression in the classroom. It blends analyses of and recommendations for K-12 education and teacher education, and focuses on the barriers we often confront when teaching, learning, and learning to teach toward social justice. The authors work in K-12 schools and teacher education programs across North America and advocate perspectives and practices that, when combined, promise to take the field of anti-oppressive education in helpful, groundbreaking directions. This book is divided into six parts, each part consisting of two or three chapters that explore, in different ways, a theme of anti-oppressive education. The chapters reflect a range of content areas (social studies, English language arts, «foreign» languages, health, natural sciences, and mathematics) in both K-12 education and teacher education; student and teacher populations (elementary, secondary, university); social differences and oppressions (based on race, culture, social class, gender, sexual orientation, language, age, disabilities); activities (simulations, service learning, book clubs, lesson planning); and research methods (historiography, curriculum analysis, discourse analysis, case study, self-study).

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
«I read this book in one sitting because each of the chapters within the six parts is intellectually illuminating. The authors provide powerful teaching insights based upon authentic classroom knowledge and understanding of schooling that is valuable learning for educators and students. Each chapter provides a critical analysis of how oppression operates in classrooms, and how anti-oppressive education can combat these conditions. The six lenses for anti-oppressive education (authoritative discourses, hidden curriculum, learning to read critically, addressing resistance, complicating race and racism, and situating anti-oppressive education) examined in the book are key areas that teacher-candidates need to understand in order to be successful teachers of all students. With this publication, Kumashiro and Ngo have greatly advanced the anti-oppressive education discourse within the discussions of transformative education.» (Carl C. Grant, Professor, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, University of Wisconsin-Madison)
