19 Urban Questions: Teaching in the City. Second Edition. Counterpoints: Studies in Postmodern Theory of Education, Vol. 215
Steinberg, Shirley R., Ed
Peter Lang New York
The second edition of "19 Urban Questions: Teaching in the City" adds new questions to those in the original volume. Continuing the developing conversation in urban education, the book is provocative in style and rich in detail. Emphasizing the complexity of urban education, Shirley R. Steinberg and the authors ask direct questions about what urban teachers need to know. Their answers are guaranteed to generate both classroom discussion and discourse in the field for years to come. The book not only addresses questions pertaining directly to today's urban schools, but poses new ones for discussion, teacher education, and urban school research. Steinberg has gathered an impressive cadre of teacher/scholars who are engaged in a socially just urban pedagogy. Contents include: (1) In Praise of Urban Educators and Urban Kids (Shirley R. Steinberg); (2) Schooling Bodies: Critical Pedagogy and Urban Youth (Antonia Darder); (3) Why a Book on Urban Education? (Joe L. Kincheloe); (4) Why Teach in Urban Settings?
