At long last, a book that brings together issues of inclusion, cooperative learning, conflict resolution, social justice teaching, and community building in one place. With the increase of diverse students in the regular classroom, pre-service and in-service teachers often find themselves overwhelmed with how to provide a quality learning community. Mara Sapon-Shevin bridges theory with practice, explaining why we need cooperative, inclusive classroom communities and shows how to achieve them, one step at a time. Because We Can Change the World delivers the possibility that teachers can create a warm, friendly, respectful, and nurturing environment for students in their classrooms and beyond. Discussing theory through vignettes and presenting practical activities, the book helps teachers show children how to understand and accept differences among themselves and in the world in a way that empowers them to make a difference.
