  1. Riah Riah says:

    I really liked the premise of this book but there just wasn't enough detail to make it really worthwhile I wanted to know a lot about the teachers and what actually happened in their classes

  2. Tony Tony says:

    This is a good book for beginning teachers to understand euity issues they will face Experienced teachers may also benefit by taking a fresh look at their classroom

  3. Caroline Lampinen Caroline Lampinen says:

    I came to this book misguided I expected a much higher level and in depth reflection and explanation of best practices for instructing and leading beginning teachers to be culturally responsive and conscious; I did not get that the first indicators being the font and format of the book it feels made to take up space rather than present a plethora of helpful information Instead this book is a short debrief of an alt very masters program focused on diversity in the classroom The author seems to know much than is in the book and the review is generally interesting but reads as a uick overview of things I've already heard as someone deeply interested in this topic Not a reuired read but interesting

    Read this for a class on diversity in the classroom Not sure what I was hoping for personally but it is a very good summery of an ethnographic research project looking at fourth graders in america Durkheim does downtown as it were My problem with the book has to do with the limits of ethnography rather than the ethnographers The author manages to evoke a lot of sympathy even for the least sympathetic of families In a summary chapter she notes that even the craziest households felt uite homey after visiting for a while

  5. Joanne Joanne says:

    Ladson Billing's book about the teacher prep program she and others started at U W Madison to train teachers to work in diverse classrooms It's a story about her own coming of age as a teacher too The book bogs down in the stories of each individual student teacher and the challenges she faces and although Ladson Billings is a smooth writer by the end of each chapter it's not clear what the point is Thank goodness for the italics that let me know what it was supposed to be

    I didn't care for the assumptions regarding the average white teacher but then I work in schools where anyone who is white is a minority What I did learn look to the students to see what sparks their interest I really don't like to view students through racial lenses which is what this book is encouraging you to do

  7. AndrewR AndrewR says:

    reuired reading for a single subject credential course i didnt really relate to most of the issues being dealt with by the student teachers being observedon the other hand Other People's Children I really found to be pertinent

  8. Jen Chau Jen Chau says:

    This book was helpful in terms of initiating my thinking about diversity in the classroom It was helpful to hear some anecdotal experiences from folks who went through diversity teacher training but I was left wanting guidance on how educators can actually make diversity work in schools

  9. Abby Abby says:

    Another thought provoking work by the author of Dreamkeepers A relatively uick read this synthesis of theoretical and practical aspects of education in diverse classrooms amply whets the appetite of the invested reader hungry to learn about both aspects

  10. Carrie Carrie says:

    This book reminds me of the thoughtful colleagues I worked with at Cardinal Stritch in Milwaukee
