In the second edition of her critically acclaimed book The Dreamkeepers, Gloria Ladson-Billings revisits the eight teachers who were profiled in the first edition and introduces us to new teachers who are current exemplars of good teaching. She shows that culturally relevant teaching is not a matter of race, gender, or teaching style. What matters most is a teacher's efforts to work with the unique strengths a child brings to the classroom. A brilliant mixture of scholarship and storytelling, The Dreamkeepers challenges us to envision intellectually rigorous and culturally relevant classrooms that have the power to improve the lives of not just African American students, but all children. This new edition also includes questions for reflection

“This moving and important book has reminded me of why I have stayed in public school teaching for over 40 years. It is an inspiration to experienced educators, beginning teachers, and all of us who care about equity and the importance of every child’s life.” —Herbert Kohl, Director, Institute for Social Justice and Education, University of San Francisco What helps great public school teachers persevere—in spite of everything? Sonia Nieto, a renowned teacher educator, takes a close look at what can be learned from veteran teachers who not only continue to teach but also manage to remain enthusiastic about it. This inspirational volume provides much-needed advice on how some urban teachers are solving the everyday challenges of student learning. Nieto collaborates with experienced teachers in urban schools who are especially effective working with students of culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds—students who are among the most marginalized in our public schools. Offering an alternative vision of what’s important in teaching and learning, Nieto concludes with an urgent call to advance new national priorities for public education.
