Justice Seekers: Pursuing Equity in the Details of Teaching and Learning (Paperback)
Revolutionary solutions for an American school system that is systemically failing Black and brown children
In Justice Seekers, celebrated social justice activist and veteran educator Lacey Robinson delivers an engaging combination of storytelling and research that explains why justice is something that is happening--or not happening--inside the classroom and within the details of teaching and learning. You'll explore ways to identify and eliminate the shame-inducing pedagogies impacting Black and brown children from classrooms and the world at large.
In the book, you'll discover the many ways that justice is in the details of race, pedagogy, and standards-driven education, as well as:
- Strategies for challenging educators to see the ways in which they can contribute to eradicating racial inequity from the classroom and from society
- New ways to recognize and reduce the impact of low cognitive demand material presented to Black and brown children in schools across America
- Methods for improving the quality of your own teaching here and now
An intuitive and exciting roadmap for K-12 teachers, teachers-in-training, school administrators, and principals who aim to reverse the racial injustices today's children face every day, Justice Seekers also belongs in the hands of instructional coaches, coordinators, and concerned parents everywhere.
