|New from||Used from|
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

"This is a masterfully crafted text, sure to be a classic in education and anthropology...[It] should be required reading of students in every teacher education program in the United States of America."
—H. Richard Milner IV, author of Rac(e)ing to Class
"Reading Schooltalk is like sitting down for coffee and frank conversation with a trusted friend about what matters most in education: creating equitable opportunities for all young people. Pollock provides a goldmine of examples of actions, strategies, and resources for classrooms, schools, and communities. This is a beautiful book, one that will make a difference in how people consider what until now they may have thought of as simply innocent 'talk.'"
—Sonia Nieto, Professor Emerita, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
Praise for Mica Pollock's Everyday Antiracism:
Teachers and parents often want to act on the issue of racism, but don’t know how. This one-of-a-kind volume is the blueprint; no one should teach another day without reading it.”
Tim Wise, author of White Like Me
Everyday Antiracism shows how ordinary people can be mindful and purposeful in confronting discrimination and taking concrete steps that, little by little, change the world.”
Linda Darling-Hammond, Stanford University
It’s rare to find a book as theoretically rich and practically useful as this one. Everyday Antiracism helps us see how everything that happens in school has racial implicationsand how in big and little ways we can all be agents of equality. What an important and hopeful resource this is.”
Bill Bigelow, editor of Rethinking Schools
Praise for Mica Pollock's Because of Race:
[This book] challenges assertions that discrimination against minority children isn’t provable, shouldn’t be discussed, or can’t be fixed."
Praise for Mica Pollock's Colormute:
"The scholarship is provocative, the text well written, and the argument clear and compelling. Pollock is a truly gifted writer."
Michelle Fine, City University of New York

I can already see how my practice as a teacher-educator will be different because of this text that so seamlessly travels from the societal to the institutional to the group level to the personal level and back out. It’s replete with tools! I love the equity arrow which asks you to consider whether the talk you are engaging in supporting student talent development—or not. I love the “strategies” and “try tomorrows” which give teachers concrete things to do in their classrooms the very next day. I love the mythstomper activity in which educators are asked to locate the myth, debunk it, and replace it. Schooltalk is an invaluable resource to teachers as they think about the day to day reality of their classrooms. It would be a perfect read for an inquiry group or book club among teachers.
