Review quote

"As I read this book, I realized that I would be referencing it in virtually every chapter of my latest textbook revision. Finally, a source that weaves issues of race and ethnicity into the very fabric of our field-theory, research and practice. Required reading for all who dare to question and love to learn." --Anita Woolfolk Hoy, Professor Emerita, Department of Educational Studies, The Ohio State University, USA "This is a must-read volume that focuses on the motivational roles of race and ethnicity in educational contexts. The editors have brought together a stellar group of scholars to discuss current thinking in theory and research, with implications for educational policy and practice. This book will be valuable for anyone concerned about the potential impact of race and ethnicity on teaching, learning, and motivation." --Dale H. Schunk, Professor of Education, The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, USA "This is an essential volume for educational researchers and theoreticians interested in more deeply studying and understanding the intersected nature of motivation, race, and education. This book represents a rare-yet much needed-fresh discussion that bridges psychological and social theories by a diverse cadre of scholars. Bravo-this text surely advances the field." --H. Richard Millner IV, Helen Faison Professor of Urban Education, University of Pittsburgh, USA "Examining race and ethnicity is becoming an increasingly important area in motivation research. Finally, there is a book that comprehensively addresses motivation issues of students of color in the area of education. The strengths of this book are that it looks at how traditional motivational constructs can include sociocultural racial perspectives and how racial constructs can be placed in the center of motivational analysis. Both approaches are necessary in order to fully understand the motivational psychology of students of color. This is an indispensable resource for motivation researchers, faculty, and students who want to better understand how race and ethnicity impact motivation in education." --Kevin Cokley, Director, The Institute for Urban Policy Research & Analysis, The University of Texas at Austin, USAshow more
