Teaching Fiercely: Spreading Joy and Justice in Our Schools (Paperback)
Revolutionize the way you negotiate the realities of childhood education
In Teaching Fiercely: Spreading Joy and Justice in Our Schools, accomplished educator Kass Minor delivers an inspiring and practical exploration of what it means to be a just teacher in a system that actively incentivizes injustice. The author explains how to build joyful experiences even in the face of inevitable injustice and demonstrates how to accept the seemingly conflicting experience of joy in the face of heartbreak.
In the book, you'll learn to be a catalyst for change, unlearning the patterns of school that have marginalized children while becoming aware of tenets of justice as they manifest in educational spaces. You'll also discover:
- Strategies for creating human-centered care and joy, in which thoughts, actions, and decisions are drawn from within the school community
- Techniques for creating student-centered experiences within standards-based classrooms
- How to raise the level of family involvement in your students' education and improve communication between family and staff
An essential blueprint for K-12 educators, school support staff, and school administrators, Teaching Fiercely will also earn a place on the bookshelves of education policymakers, researchers, and students.
