    4.5 out of 5 stars 305

Drawing on his own experience of feeling undervalued and invisible in classrooms as a young man of color, and merging his experiences with more than a decade of teaching and researching in urban America, award-winning educator Christopher Emdin offers a new lens on an approach to teaching and learning in urban schools. He begins by taking to task the perception of urban youth of color as unteachable, and he challenges educators to embrace and respect each student's culture.

I recommend this book to anyone who teaches in a cultural setting that does not match their upbringing. As a teacher, I must first participate in the world of my students if I want them to particpate in mine.
