There are far too few books written on teaching by people that have actually earned the right to write about teaching. In Rhythm and Resistance we have just such a book, striking a powerful balance between theory and practice, edging the two ever closer together in ways that will profoundly impact the day-to-day work of countless teachers. This book has me wondering aloud, again, about why the voices of our nation s most gifted classroom educators are so muted in policy and practice discussions about the direction of our field. --Jeff Duncan-Andrade, Associate Professor of Raza Studies and Education, San Francisco State University
The power of poetry has never been so eloquently revealed as in this powerful collection of writing from poets both famous and unknown. Add to this the stirring words of Linda Christensen and Dyan Watson and we have a book that will move teachers and their students to speak their truths and to know that their words, their thoughts, and their lives matter. --Sonia Nieto, Professor Emerita, Language, Literacy, and Culture, University of Massachusetts Amherst
