A White Teacher Talks about Race

Author: Julie Landsman
Publisher: Scarecrow Press

Experienced teacher and Minneapolis writer Landsman (Basic Needs: A Year with Street Kids in a City School) here describes a typical day in an inner-city, alternative high school program. She discusses the daily trials and triumphs of her students, 75 percent of whom are not of European descent. Many have children of their own to support and experience family difficulties and daily confrontations with violence and racism.

Landsman includes some of the practices that work with "nontraditional" students, such as having them write from different perspectives and offering more inclusive lessons about history. She also points out the flaws in the current "one size fits all" approach to education. This readable book conveys its message simply and powerfully. A superb addition to public and academic libraries.
