Part two, "Working in the classroom," discusses "working within the curriculum,""communicating with students,""including ethnic materials,""handling controversial issues in the classroom," and "keeping physically and mentally fit." Part three, "Working outside the classroom," discusses "providing meaningful homework assignments,""providing a total educational experience,""managing a school cooperative," and "integrating classwork with the life of the local community." Part four discusses "Working with parents, paraprofessionals, and community residents." Part five, "Using resources," suggests resources that have proved effective in the urban classroom. Part six is a "Bibliography," which lists books for elementary grade pupils, books for junior and senior high school students, books for teachers, films, filmstrips, photoaids, and records and tapes.
