Description

This important book helps school leaders let go of a "comfortable" mindset and enter a world of courageous conversations that examine and challenge the impact of racism and other forms of oppression on disciplinary patterns, instructional practices, and school policies. Authors Hunsberger, Mayo, and Neal prepare you to address these difficult issues though authentic, critical discourse. The book includes classroom activities and facilitation tips to help prompt systematic changes in schools through improving instruction, supporting inclusiveness, and strengthening student engagement.





After reading Becoming a Social Justice Leader you'll be able to:











Design conversations that support participant engagement and create a safe environment for discussion.







Explore personal dispositions, attitudes, and stances that contribute to systemic oppression.







Understand how oppression is established and sustained in order to enact change.







Create alliances within school settings to foster dialogue and combat oppression.








Additional worksheets that help educators examine and expand their work as social justice leaders are also available for download (http://www.routledge.com/products/9781138957749).

Review quote

"Education -the kind that is equitable, fulfilling and meaningful-is in short supply in the nation. The authors powerfully provide a practical pathway for educators to move beyond the role of `just a teacher' to embody justice in teaching This book is a beacon for Americans who work in the service of education."





--Eric Cooper, President and Founder, National Urban Alliance, and The Huffington Post Education Blogger








"Becoming a Social Justice Leader is a book of hope and transformation for educators and will help them meet the needs of all their students. It is audacious, effervescent, and superbly written, and it will help us move from an unconscious to a conscious awareness, changing mindsets and mental models that have led to stereotypes."





--Charlotte V. Ijei, Director of Pupil Personnel and Diversity, Parkway School District, MO
