Cary Buzzelli and Bill Johnson reinvigorate the enduring question: What is the place of morality in the classroom? Departing from notions of a morality that can only be abstract and absolute, these authors ground their investigation in analyses of actual teacher-student interactions. This approach illuminates the ways in which language, power and culture impact "the moral" in teaching. Buzzelli and Johnson's study addresses a wide range of moral issues in various classroom contexts. Its practical and diverse examples make it a valuable resource for teachers and teacher development programs.

MEDIA REVIEWS
..."An ambitious analysis that addresses morality grounded in classroom interaction. Through their analysis the authors make public the moment-to-moment moral aspects of teaching practice, a subject too long ignored."
-Teachers College Record
"In this accessible and deeply reasoned book, two experienced teacher-scholars challenge us to look into the dailiness of classroom life to find the moral heart of teaching. Teachers and teacher educators will find here an invitation and a guide to greater imagination, generosity, and courage.."
-William C. Ayers, author of "A Kind and Just Parent
"Buzzelli and Johnston show convincingly that moral considerations pervade teaching. Their analysis dramatically reveals moral issues in many aspects of classroom interaction. A fine contribution.."
-Nel Noddings, author of "Caring: A Feminine Approach to Ethics and Moral Education
"These scholars brilliantly demonstrate that in classrooms, moral issues are at stake moment by moment. Their message could not be more timely, as it bears many implications for what it means to understand schools and schooling.."
-James Paul Gee, author of "An Introduction to Discourse Analysis
