Editorial Reviews

“Teaching Transformation is a courageous, innovative, and deeply moving book…in which dreams translate not into mere wishes but into real possibilities. Everyone interested in pedagogy, multiculturalism, and democracy should buy this book, share it with friends, and make sure it is taught in every classroom in the country.” —Henry Giroux, Global Television Network Chair Professor, Department of English and Cultural Studies, McMaster University, author of The University in Chains “An invaluable tool for teachers engaged in the complex tasks of teaching race, gender, sexuality, and multicultural literature.”—Jean Wyatt, author of Risking Difference “A deeply disturbing and profoundly hopeful book about how our teaching can disrupt the status quo and invite us to dream new worlds. Keating, inspired teacher and committed social justice activist, shares her vision of a transformational multiculturalism and offers concrete suggestions for ways to enact it in our classrooms.”—Paula Rothenberg, author of Invisible Privilege: A Memoir About Race, Class and Gender “Keating has done it again. In sharing her own practices as a teacher fiercely committed to the art of transformation through learning, she has created a book that is sure to alter the way we read books, the way we teach, and the way we think of the classroom. This book is a must read for everyone who believes that the classroom is a dynamic place; a place of resistance to the status quo. Teaching Transformation gives readers the actual tools to create complex conversations with students of all levels about the most challenging issues facing us today: race, sexuality, class, and the human spirit.”—Daisy Hernández, co-editor of Colonize This! Young Women of Color on Today’s Feminism “Clearly written, cogently argued, and immensely thoughtful, Keating makes a major contribution to one of the most important fields of the early 21st century.”—Timothy B. Powell, Director, Center for Native American Studies, Senior Research Scientist, University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology
