Chicanas/os are part of the youngest, largest, and fastest growing racial/ethnic 'minority' population in the United States, yet at every schooling level, they suffer the lowest educational outcomes of any racial/ethnic group. Using a 'counterstorytelling' methodology, Tara Yosso debunks racialized myths that blame the victims for these unequal educational outcomes and redirects our focus toward historical patterns of institutional neglect. She artfully interweaves empirical data and theoretical arguments with engaging narratives that expose and analyse racism as it functions to limit access and opportunity for Chicana/o students. By humanising the need to transform our educational system, Yosso offers an accessible tool for teaching and learning about the problems and possibilities present along the Chicano/a educational pipeline.

While many educators acknowledge the challenges of a curriculum shaped by test preparation, implementing meaningful new teaching strategies can be difficult. Active Learning presents an examination of innovative, interactive teaching strategies that were successful in engaging urban students who struggled with classroom learning. Drawing on rich ethnographic data, the book proposes participatory action research as a viable approach to teaching and learning that supports the development of multiple literacies in writing, reading, research and oral communication. As Wright argues, in connecting learning to authentic purposes and real world consequences, participatory action research can serve as a model for meaningful urban school reform. After an introduction to the history and demographics of the working-class West Coast neighborhood in which the described PAR project took place, the book discusses the "pedagogy of praxis" method and the project’s successful development of student voice, sociopolitical analysis capacities, leadership skills, empowerment and agency. Topics addressed include an analysis and discussion of the youth-driven PAR process, the reactions of student researchers, and the challenges for adults in maintaining youth and adult partnerships. A thought-provoking response to current educational challenges, Active Learning offers both timely implications for educational reform and recommendations to improve school policies and practices.

Practice What You Teach

Social Justice Education in the Classroom and the Streets

Many teachers enter the profession with a desire to "make a difference." But given who most teachers are, where they come from, and what pressure they feel to comply with existing school policies, how can they take up this charge? Practice What You Teach follows three different groups of educators to explore the challenges of developing and supporting teachers’ sense of social justice and activism at various stages of their careers: White pre-service teachers typically enrolled in most teacher education programs, a group of new teachers attempting to integrate social justice into their teaching, and experienced educators who see their teaching and activism as inextricably linked. Teacher educator Bree Picower delves into each of these group’s triumphs and challenges, providing strategies and suggestions for all teachers along with her in-depth analysis. By understanding all these challenges, pre-service and in-service teachers, along with teacher educators, will be in a better position to develop the kind of political analysis that lays the foundation for teacher activism. This timely resource helps prepare and support all educators to stand up for equity and justice both inside and outside of the classroom and offers a more nuanced portrait of what the struggle to truly "make a difference" looks like.

Elusive justice

wrestling with difference and educational equity in everyday practice

"Elusive Justice" addresses how educators think about and act upon differences in schools--be they based on race, gender, class, or disability--and how discourse and practice about such differences are intimately bound up with educational justice. Rather than skip over contentious or uncomfortable dialogues about difference, Thea Abu El-Haj tackles them head on. Through rich and detailed ethnographic portraits of two schools with a commitment to social justice, she analyzes the ways discourses about difference provide a key site for both producing and resisting inequalities, and examines the dilemmas that emerge from either focusing on or ignoring them. In interrogating fundamental assumptions about difference and equity, Abu El-Haj deftly blends critique with a search for hope and possibility to ultimately argue for ways educators might translate ideals about justice into effective practice.

In this fifth edition of her best-selling book Affirming Diversity: The Sociopolitical Context of Multicultural Education, renowned scholar Sonia Nieto explores the meaning, necessity, and benefits of multicultural education for students of all backgrounds. Intended for preservice and in-service teachers and educators, this book looks at how personal, social, political, cultural, and educational factors affect the success or failure of students in today's classroom. Expanding upon the popular case-study approach, the fifth edition also examines the lives of 19 real students who are affected by multicultural education, or a lack of it. Topics include racial, linguistic, religious, cultural, and sexual diversity. Social justice is firmly embedded in this view of multicultural education, and teachers are encouraged to work for social change in their classrooms, schools, and communities.

A volume in Educational Leadership for Social Justice Series Editor Jeffrey S. Brooks, Auburn University The purpose of this book series is to promote research on educational leadership for social justice. Specifically, we seek edited volumes, textbooks, and full!length studies focused on research that explores the ways educational leadership preparation and practice can be a means of addressing equity concerns throughout P-20 education. Within this book Leadership for Social Justice: Promoting Equity and Excellence Through Inquiry and Reflective Practice the contributors provide a variety of rich perspectives to the social justice phenomenon from the lens of empirical, historical, narrative, and conceptual designs. These designs reiterate the importance of bridging theory and practice while simultaneously producing significant research and scholarship in the field. Collectively, the authors seek to give voice to empowering, social justicefocused research-an area that continues to garner much interest in the areas of educational leadership research, teaching, and learning. In conjunction with the "theme" of this issue, the chapters offer research from an American perspective and offer suggestions, and implications for the field of educational leadership on both a national and international level. The collection contributes to research, theory and practice in educational and community settings.

Dieses Ebook fasst die Ergebnisse der Bachelorthesis "Potentiale von Facebook Commerce als Verkaufsplattform für Nischenprodukte" von Jan Scholten zusammen. Die Abschlussarbeit entstand im Studiengang Wirtschaftsinformatik (Business Information Management) im Sommersemester 2014 an der RFH Köln. Social Media und der zugehörige direkte Kundendialog gehören bei Unternehmen schon länger zum Marketingmix. Durch Facebook Commerce bietet sich inzwischen zudem eine neue direkte Absatzmöglichkeit. Die vorliegende Untersuchung befasst sich explorativ mit Facebook Commerce als einer direkten Absatzmöglichkeit für einen bestehenden Onlinehändler, der rein pflanzliche (vegane) Lebensmittel vertreibt, also Nischenprodukte. In Zusammenarbeit mit dem darauf spezialisierten Onlinehändler wurde testweise ein Facebook-Shop implementiert. Eine SWOT-Analyse untersuchte die Potentiale für Smilefood in Bezug auf Facebook und auf Social Commerce. So konnten Handlungsempfehlungen für Smilefood hergeleitet werden. Die Teilnehmer des empirischen Teils der Untersuchung wurden in Bezug auf das Potential von Facebook Commerce am Nischenmarkt der veganen Produkte befragt. Dabei lautete die leitende Forschungsfrage: "In welchem Maße könnte Facebook Commerce zu einem verkaufsfördernden Mehrwert für den Smilefood-Onlineshop führen?" Dieses Ebook erscheint in der Schriftenreihe zur veganen Kommunikationsforschung, in der auch Arbeiten von Nachwuchswissenschaftlern – Absolventen und Studierenden – zur Publikation gelangen. Zu den Autoren: Jan Scholten ist Fachinformatiker für Systemintegration und erlangte den Bachelor of Arts im Studiengang Business Information Management (Wirtschaftsinformatik) an der RFH Köln sowie den Master of Arts im Studiengang Digital Business Management an der RFH Köln. Martin Gertler ist Professor an der RFH Köln und lehrt Kommunikations- und Medienwissenschaft. Er forscht zu medienethischen Fragestellungen und begleitet Promotionsvorhaben in der Graduate School der UvH in Utrecht. Weitere Informationen unter
