Louise Derman-Sparks and Carol Brunson Phillips have been teaching
anti-racism to adults for over 20 years. Based on their real classroom
experience, Teaching/Learning Anti-Racism offers us a guide to the
development of anti-racist identity, awareness, and behavior. By integrating
methodology and course content descriptions with student writings and analyses
of studentsí growth, the book highlights the interaction between teaching and
learning. Organized chronologically from the first to the last class, the text
describes how each session contributed to the studentsí fascinating journey
from pro-racist consciousness to active anti-racism.
Teaching/Learning Anti-Racism provides both a "how-to" and a conceptual framework to help teachers and trainers adapt anti-racism education for their programs. Ordering information: http://store.tcpress.com/0807736376.shtml
