Urban Teaching in America is a brief yet comprehensive text that provides undergraduate and graduate students in education with an overview of urban teaching. The book synthesizes the work of urban education theorists, researchers and practitioners into one place. Organized around eight authentic questions, the book offers pre-service and in-service teachers opportunities for critical reflection and problem-posing not often seen in comparable course texts. This text supports staff who are looking for increasingly creative approaches to exploring key educational issues with their students.
