This book marks the 10th and final professional developmentteacher book I have read in the summer of 2015 So much knowledgeThroughout college I was dead set on teaching powerful relevant curriculum to my students Then I became a real teacher was handed less than mediocre curriculum and eventually started to write my own Teaching for social justice took a back seat as I flailed around at figuring out how to teach and surviveReading Christiansen s book reminded me that I absolutely must change my curriculum so that students read and write about what empowers them and to give them a voice Already I ve made notes on my year long plan to incorporate ways for students to read write and share about their families traditions and languages in a school where white kids are in the minorityI loved how Christiansen didn t just lecture on the importance of such a curriculum Her book provides unit plans handouts and mentor texts from students and experts alike And with 20 years in the classroom she knows what she s talking about Unfortunately I teach middle school where most of my kiddos are Mexican whereas Christiansen wrote her book focused on mostly African American high school students Her mentor texts and examples almost all speak to a predominately Black audience and are at such a high reading level that my 6th graders would be lost While I was disappointed that I couldn t directly apply many of the lessons and units I think I can take the concepts of her chapters and turn them into something that will cater to the demographic I teach It ll be a lot of work but there s nothing uite like a curriculum that excites students

Teaching for Joy and Justice review Ò E-book, or Kindle E-pub Teaching for Joy and Justice is the much anticipated seuel to Linda Christensen's bestselling Reading Writing and Rising Up. This is probably the best book about teaching I ve read One passage sums up the main point of the book When the curriculum instead of sanitizing the past and excluding the present holds a mirror to students lives so that the ineuality and injustice students experience starts to breathe in the classroom students wake up I have the page with that uote bookmarked so I can read it and gain clarity when making curricular choices A common complaint about PD books is that they have plenty of theory but not enough practice This book contains a number of useful activities and I particularly like the Handouts that accompany each chapter The essays articles and student examples are all useful However I particularly like the theory in this book I d love it if it didn t have the practical usable activities This book made me think about why I teach and encouraged me to let those reasons seep into how I teach
