Abstract

Drawing on international best practice from schools and classrooms, this book is a timely and invaluable collection that engages with innovative school practices promoting social justice and empowerment for learners and teachers who are diverse in race, ethnicity, language, gender, sexual orientation, or faith. International in approach, widely researched, theoretically informed, and straightforwardly written, it illustrates the perpetual process of working towards the goals of social justice and empowerment, and some of the many ways this is done. Taking a case study approach, the book outlines and describes effective models of social justice and empowerment for diverse learners and diverse teachers developed by schools. With case studies ranging from preschool to secondary school, and with examples from both rural and urban environments, it is essential reading for classroom teachers and administrators, teacher-education students and their teachers. The contributors range from across Europe, Scandanavia and North America.
