Teach! Change! Empower!: Solutions for Closing the Achievement Gaps

About the eBook

"Teach! Change! Empower! takes the concepts of diversity and change—which are often complex, abstract, confusing, and not salient to many teachers who struggle with the meaning of these concepts in actual classroom practices—and uses them as a framework for something that is very real to teachers: the achievement gap."
—Barbara Heuberger Rose, Associate Professor
Miami University

"Readers are challenged to think about themselves and their role in addressing achievement gaps in a non-blaming manner. Carl Grant does an outstanding job of incorporating the work of a number of researchers."
—Maria Whittemore, Minority Achievement Coordinator
Frederick County Public Schools, MD

Narrow the achievement gap by affirming diversity and engaging in a process of personal change!

The achievement gap illustrates restricted life chances and choices for many students, and only by addressing these inequities can we enable all learners to reach their fullest potential. Teach! Change! Empower! provides a powerful, step-by-step process for making the changes necessary to close the achievement gaps in your school!

This innovative resource offers a wealth of strategies and action plans to help teachers reflect on their own beliefs about diversity and power and turn those reflections into actions. Educators can put into practice ideas that challenge the status quo, including:

  • Culturally relevant curriculum and environments for students
  • Caring with a social-political consciousness within a culture of learning
  • Cooperative professional development for teachers, administrators, and staff
  • Democratic student involvement

Initiate change in your classroom that fosters lifelong learning in yourself, your students, and your school!
