<p>Here is a book of classroom practice influenced by the late Paulo Freire, who urged educators to teach critically from the bott...om up against the myths and inequities imposed from the top down. In a Freirean approach, critical teaching means inviting students to examine all subject matters in depth, not to swallow facts passively. Critical teaching asks students to question the status quo, to connect academic learning to their personal context and the larger social context. To Freire, critical thinking was a social inquiry into the historical and personal meaning of any knowledge. Thus, in memory of Paulo Freire, the essays in this collection report critical practices by teachers committed to transformation in and beyond the classroom.<p>These teachers' ingenuity produced cross-cultural stories of what can be done with some risk and experimentation. Perhaps most of all, they show culturally diverse educators constructively taking sides and refusing to fit students or themselves quietly into the status quo. Honoring the legacy of Paulo Freire, these teacher-authors carry forward Freire's dream of making the world less cruel, and transforming education into cultural action for freedom, bringing the future to life in what we do today.</p> Read More

"Talking the process of change and teaching is a necessity for our intellectual and social well-being," says acclaimed author Regi...e Routman. Now, in this long-awaited volume, Routman continues the discussion she began in the best-selling <i>Invitations</i> and further explores the full universe of an effective language arts and literacy program across the curriculum. Filled with an array of field-tested teaching ideas, detailed strategies, reviews of theory, teacher-crafted lessons, and lists of resources, <i>Conversations</i> is all you need to become an informed, confident professional, sensitive to your students' needs and interests. What's more, it incorporates Routman's perspective on important topical issues such as curricular rigor, direct teaching, specific skills, and daily monitoring. <p> <i>Conversations</i> is grounded in the belief that the connections, interactions, reflections, and new thinking that evolve from rich dialogue define what we know. It was written, in part, to spur teachers to challenge assumptions, clarify their own learning, and take the lead in their own professional development. While this is not a book about a particular methodology, Routman does explore current theory and practice, and supports her views with classroom-based and scientific research. The book is upbeat and practical; each chapter is self-contained and can be read in any order. As Routman shares her own experiences and resources - through narratives, anecdotes, step-by-step demonstrations, and examples of students' work - we may find ourselves questioning, modifying, validating, or changing our own practices. Most of all, we will find ourselves <i>talking</i>. And here is where the conversation begins. <p> <b>Text chapters: 656pp - The Blue Pages: Resources for Teachers: 240pp</b> Read More
