This book integrates ethnographic research with teacher education strategies, with the aim of preparing teachers to work with urban and low-income youth in schools and other social service agencies. Through various case studies, Gordon provides insight into how educators in diverse settings can engage students-be they preservice or veteran teachers-in the process of discovering the complexity of their students' lives, as well as their own.

Editorial Reviews

"The theoretical underpinnings of June Gordon's contribution to pedagogy have been around for a long time but have penetrated practice very little. Her unique contribution is in fusing theory and practice and illustrating that fusion in a range of contexts. It is a pleasure to have a silent conversation with an author who has command of both her material and the language of communicating it.."-John I. Goodlad, president of the Institute for Educational Inquiry "Working again off the beaten track, June Gordon shows how ethnographic methods are effective not only for research but also for pedagogy on class and race issues. Reviewing insightful examples of ethnography for educational purposes, Gordon offers keen guidelines on doing transformative research, generating dialogues between researcher and researched, reconnecting students with communities, and informing students early about the hard realities of the teaching worlds. Researching, learning, and teaching are closely linked in Gordon's innovative approach.."-Joe R. Feagin, University of Florida (Author of Racist America, Routledge, 2000)
