About the Author
What People are Saying About This
"This book is a comprehensive tome on how to prepare teachers to practice ethical caring in a rich relational and social context of their own making – to become community teachers in and for caring community schools."—From the Foreword by Peter C. Murrell, Professor of Urban Education at Loyola University Maryland
"The most striking piece of this book is the descriptions and stories of how the community serves as mentors to the university faculty and students. The authors take readers with them through the many authentic activities led by the community mentors. We are left both with the desire to spend time with these remarkable community members ourselves and the desire to develop similar community-based programs."—Jana Noel, California State University, Sacramento
"Finally, a work that provides us with a model of what comprehensive and sustained community engagement looks like in teacher preparation. Zygmunt and Clark challenge all teacher educators to move beyond involvement to engagement and transformation. The book is mandatory reading for teacher educators who are serious about preparing teachers for diverse schools and communities."—Tyrone Howard, professor of education at the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, University of California, Los Angeles.
