Publisher's Summary

In this time of narrowed curricula and high-stakes accountability, Gregory Michie's tales of struggle and triumph in Holler If You Hear Me: The Education of a Teacher and His Students are as relevant as ever. Since it was first published, in 1999, Holler has become essential reading for new and seasoned teachers alike and is an inspiring read for many others. Weaving back and forth between Michie's awakening as a teacher and the first-person stories of his students, this highly acclaimed book paints an intimate and compassionate portrait of teaching and learning in urban America. While the popular notion of what it's like to teach in city schools is dominated by horror stories and hero tales, Michie and his students reside somewhere in between these extremes - "between the miracles and the metal detectors".

This updated 10th Anniversary Edition of Michie's moving memoir of teaching on Chicago's South Side features a new introduction and a new afterword that includes updates on several of his students.

Critic Reviews

(JoAnn Phillion, Purdue University)
"Gregory Michie expands degrees of hope for cultivating humanity through teaching with love, justice, and cultural empathy and imagination." (Ming Fang He, College of Education, Georgia Southern University)
"A decade later it's still alive with relevancy, ideas, and voices." (Luis J. Rodriguez, author of Always Running: La Vida Loca: Gang Days in LA)
