Solomon and Levine-Rasky suggest that the ineffectiveness of professional development initiatives to move educators from a posture of resistance to one of transformation points to the need for a more progressive teacher education pedagogy.
Based on a proven Urban Diversity Teacher Education model, this book provides theoretically driven practices for simultaneous renewal of teacher education in the university, partnership schools, and the communities they serve. It links the sensitive issues of race, ethnicity and culture to the broader equity, social justice, and diversity themes in Canadian society and institutions.
Teaching for Equity and Diversity will be useful to teachers, graduate students in education, teacher educators, and cultural workers who are committed to inclusive and democratic schooling.
