What makes this book so valuable and fascinating is the extraordinarily extensive fieldwork, which creates a vivid sense not only of how questions about race and gender intersect for college undergraduates, but also how the teachers actually present their classes, how the students react to what they read, where they grow angry, why they are led so often to disguise their own beliefs. In this respect it's a wonderfully human and believable work. . . .The book will richly fuel the national debate. It is very important and I hope it will be widely read. -- Jonathan Kozol, National Book Award winner and author of "Savage Inequalities"
The authors provide a rich analysis of the classrooms they observed and the larger understandings they can provide. If one wants to consider the theory underlying feminist pedagogies, using a quite nuanced analysis of various kinds of feminist environments, then this expanded edition can help to think through the major issues. * Contemporary Sociology *
For teachers of theology and religion newly exploring what constitutes feminist pedagogies, or for veterans of feminist pedagogy looking for an up-to-date critical treatment of feminist practices of teaching and learning, this book is a reasonably helpful resource with a wealth of practical examples and an extensive bibliography. * Teaching Theology & Religion *
A fascinating glimpse of a first generation of feminist academics at work. * Journal Of Educational Thought(Jet) *
The tensions, dilemmas, and exhilarating pleasures of feminist teaching converge in this fascinating book, which documents actual classroom give-and-take. In addition to observing, the authors interviewed the teachers and several students in each class. The result is a Rashomon portrayal of the same moment, differently perceived, as well as fresh insight into interactions between social positioning, experience, and learning. -- Barrie Thorne, author of Gender Play: Girls and Boys in School
