"[This book] gives us strategies for bringing life back to school; it allows us to think creatively about connecting instruction to the lives of children who have not been well-served; it helps us learn to value the gifts with words our children of color bring; and it gives us hope for educating a generation that can change the status quo, that will build the America we have yet to see...the one that made that as-yet-unfulfilled promise of 'liberty and justice for all.'" Lisa Delpit, From the Foreword Toward a Literacy of Promise examines popular assumptions about literacy and challenges readers to question how it has been used historically both to empower and to oppress. The authors offer an alternative view of literacy – a "literacy of promise" – that charts an emancipatory agenda for literacy instructional practices in schools. Weaving together critical perspectives on pedagogy, language, literature, and popular texts, each chapter provides an in-depth discussion that illuminates how a literacy of promise can be realized in school and classrooms. Although the major focus is on African American middle and secondary students as a population that has experienced the consequences of inequality, the chapters demonstrate general and specific applications to other populations.

Teaching for Equity and Diversity Research to Practice

This book is the first national study of Canadian educators' perspectives and practices of multicultural and anti-racism education. It explores teachers' perspectives on race and ethno-cultural equity, and offers solutions for some of the most pressing social justice and diversity issues facing educators in contemporary Canadian schools and society. 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 antiracism 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 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.
