Today's classrooms reimagined

If you're looking for a book on how to control your students, this isn't it! Instead, this is a book on what classroom learning could be if we aspire to co-create more culturally responsive and equitable environments--environments that are safe, affirming, learner-centered, intellectually challenging, and engaging. If we create the kind of places where our students want to be . . .

A critically important resource for teachers and administrators alike, These Kids Are Out of Control details the specific practices, tools, beliefs, dispositions, and mindsets that are essential to better serving the complex needs of our diverse learners, especially our marginalized students. Gain expert insight on:

  • What it means to be culturally responsive in today's classroom environments, even in schools at large
  • How to decide what to teach, understand the curriculum, build relationships in and outside of school, and assess student development and learning
  • The four best practices for building a classroom culture that is both nurturing and rigorous, and where all students are seen, heard, and respected Alternatives to punitive disciplinary action that too often sustains the cradle-to-prison pipeline

    Classroom management takes care of itself when you engage students, help them see links and alignment of the curriculum to their lives, build on and from student identity and culture, and recognize the many ways instructional practices can shift. These Kids Are Out of Control is your opportunity to get started right away!
