Description

Excerpts from interviews allow adolescents to speak out on ethnic and racial identities, revealing that identity and academic engagement emanate not just from societal and cultural forces, but also from day- to-day experiences and interactions within school settings. Commentary drawing on contemporary social theory emphasizes the political and relational nature of race and ethnicity, and illustrates the potential for identities and ideologies to vary over time and across school settings. Of interest to educators. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
