Description


For almost two decades, teachers have looked to Reading, Writing, and Rising Up as a trusted text to integrate social justice teaching in language arts classrooms. This accessible, encouraging book has been called "a profound work of emancipatory pedagogy" and "an inspiring example of tenacious and transformative teaching."

Now, Linda Christensen is back with a fully revised, updated version. Offering essays, teaching models, and a remarkable collection of student writing, Christensen builds on her catalog of social justice scholarship with a breathtaking set of tools and wisdom for teachers in the new millennium.

Updated classic chapters: "Unlearning the Myths that Bind Us" and "Standard English: Whose Standard?"
New essays and strategies on teaching literature, the college essay, and the revision of student writing.
Lessons for teaching about gentrification, displacement, and historical fiction.
Evocative new pieces of student essays, narrative, and poetry.
