"A teacher's life is one of continuous change and adaptation. In this insightful and accessible blend of narrative and theory. Olsen skillfully explores how teachers develop their identity and how they make critical inquiry a part of their daily life."---Stephen brookfield, author of The Skillful Teacher This book focuses on the continual process of becoming a teacher and on how to teach well in this contemporary age. Wrapping its discussions around the core concept of teacher identity, the book introduces a model of teacher learning that illuminates how teachers can systematically examine their own personal and professional teaching influences and work to arrange, adjust, and assemble them in conjunction with educational research into a coherent, unique, successful whole. "This series renders complex ideas not only intelligible, but also meaningful. The authors brilliantly weave together theory and research, vision, and vivid examples. Teacher-readers will find themselves respected as intellectuals and empowered as leaders."---Christine Sleeter, California State University-Monterey Bay The heart of this excellent book is an affirming view consistent with caring theory. It shows how commitment to sound educational practice for English language development educators is more a personal, rather than professional, desire or orientation. This book centers educational change on effective pedagogy and challenges the reader to undergo a transformation process that is more inside-out than outside-in. Angela Valenzuela, University of Texas, Austin and author of Subtractive Schooling and Leaving Children Behind. In Teaching English Learners Tellez examines the role of the teacher in introducting and inspiring students to learn both a new language and a new society. He offers alterative views of language and shows how a deeper understanding of it can shape and enrich the lives of both students and teachers. Drawing on progressive pragmatic philosophies of Dewey, Addams, and Rorty, this book helps teachers understand the important lineage and profession they have joined (or will join) and the urgent role they play as agents of democratic ideals and actions. "Here is a collection of theoretically cohesive books, all of them integrating research and heartfelt understanding. The books carry the polyphonic voices of the individual volumes and, most importantly, they are in sync in purpose, and in passion, and in thoughtfulness about how to make our world a better place for all children."---Maria E. Torres-Guzman, Teachers College, Columbia University Joey Feldman skillfully blends thoughtful research with the voices of practitioners, including his own as a former teacher and principal, to showcase the possibilities of personalization in our public high schools. We know that teachers do their best work when they collaborate with and learn from each other, and that students benefit from being well-known participants in a supportive community. This helpful and engaging book describes how these desirable teaching and learning conditions are enhanced when high schools---of any size---figure out how to act small. For those committed to improving our nation's high schools, this book is an important resource.---Linda Darling Hammond Charles L. Ducommun Professor of Education Stanford University A good school, whether large or small, must be `small' enough to foster relationships and avoid contrived institutional dynamics. Teaching Without Bells makes a powerful and compelling case for that indispensable ingredient.---Adamurganski, President of the Rochester, NY, Teachers Association. "Books about teaching seldom combine theory, research, practice, and inspiration, but that is precisely what The Teacher's Toolkit series does. Seasoned educators and researchers explore the profession of teaching through social justice and efficacy. University faculty, their students, and new teachers will cherish these books, while veteran teachers will develop new insights from them."---Sonia Nieto, University of Massachusetts, Amherst "this book is a wonderful resource to support the development of professional and collaborative teachers. Grubb and Tredway show how teachers can work together to create new educational environments that are essential to improving public schools for all students."---Ken Zeichner, University of Washington As classroom and school leaders, teachers working collectively can solve their own problems and become the fulcrum of school change. The authors encourage teachers to move out of the individual classroom and to think critically and institutionally about the schools they would like to work in, about their own responsibilities for creating such schools, and about the range of policies from outside the school and how they can influence those policies rather than being subjected to them. This book shows that a teacher's influence is not limited to the classroom and students, but that it can significantly shape and inform external policies and decisions. "The concerns of twenty-first-century teachers are significant, varied, and urgent. Addressing them as part of professional socialization and further professional development has never been more important. The Teacher's Toolkit does just that. Using powerful tools of inquiry, narrative, critical reflection, and analysis, these books help new and experienced teachers to achieve balance and perspective in their professional and personal lives."---Susan Florio-Ruane, Professor of Teacher Education, Michigan State University Teaching Toward Democracy challenges our core beliefs on today's pressing issues both inside our public schools and beyond them, too. The book is a must-read for teachers, parents, policymakers, university faculty, and students. This book examines the contested space of schooling and school reform with a focus on the unique challenges and opportunities that teaching in a democratic society provides. Teaching within and for democracy involves developing particular qualities of mind that teachers explore and work to develop as they become more effective educators. The authors offer specific ideas and interventions that can be implemented inside the classroom as well as with parents and the larger community. "This series renders complex ideas not only intelligible, but also meaningful. The authors brilliantly weave together theory and research, vision, and vivid examples. Teacher-readers will find themselves respected as intellectuals and empowered as leaders."---Christine Sleeter, California State University-Monterey Bay "Making a Difference is an easy-to-read book that gets at much of the complexity of what it means to `stay in' or `leave' teaching. This book makes it clear that this kind of simple distinction will no longer work to answer the most troubling---and the most important---questions related to teacher career trajectories. This book will make a significant contribution to the literature."---Marilyn Cochran Smith, Lynch School of Education, Boston College Our culture and media often simplify the choice many educators face---tostay in or leave classroom teaching. Written for teachers and other educational professionals, this book dispels this simple dichotomy by representing the range of responses and career pathways that enable educators to make a difference. Based on interviews with hundreds of change-minded educators, Making a Difference shares career stories and insights against a backdrop that maps out the complexities, roles, and structures that define professional advancement in education. "Books about teaching seldom combine theory, research, practice, and inspiration, but that is precisely what The Teacher's Toolkit series does.
