Description

In his groundbreaking work, Martin Haberman identified key dispositions of "star" teachers that help them work successfully with students in poverty. More than two decades later, Maureen D. Gillette and Djanna A. Hill build on Haberman’s seminal work, considering contemporary issues such as social justice, technology, and the political environment, and moving beyond the classroom to focus on teachers as leaders and advocates for all students. Given the high-stakes nature of ensuring that students in high-poverty urban and rural areas receive an excellent education, this new edition provides concrete suggestions for what readers can do to implement culturally relevant pedagogy and to forge a path to becoming a star teacher. Co-published with Kappa Delta Pi, Star Teachers of Children in Poverty offers teachers research-based strategies for action so that they can practice socially just and culturally relevant teaching toward the success of every student.

New to the second edition:

  • Updated statistics on school demographics, poverty, and teacher turnover in urban and rural areas.
  • Added discussion that demonstrates the interrelated nature of poverty, health, safety, trauma, and power, and the cumulative effects of these factors on learning.
  • Examination of the role of federal and state government in education and the necessity for teachers to be leaders beyond the classroom.
  • Vignettes for experiential learning and analysis, and end-of-chapter questions and resources for further exploration.

Reviews

Praise for the second edition:

'We at The Haberman Foundation are thrilled to see the legacy of Dr. Martin Haberman live on in this new publication. We believe his 50 plus years of research are more relevant and needed in today’s society than ever before.' Delia Stafford, President & CEO, Haberman Educational Foundation

'An updated Star Teachers of Children in Poverty is an instructional dream come true. For decades, Martin Haberman’s original book was an excellent teaching tool for me and a powerful learning source for my education students. The new revised edition, by Maureen Gillette and Djanna Hill, is masterfully updated: to help teacher-candidates to comprehend the dehumanizing poverty that students today are experiencing across and throughout America; and to help education students develop pedagogy and a mindset that will help them to successfully educate their students and sustain them as they do the good work they dreamed of doing since they played school as children.'Carl A. Grant, University of Wisconsin-Madison

'When Star Teachers of Children in Poverty was first released, Martin Haberman shocked the education world by describing effective teachers who utilized a different set of knowledge, skills, and dispositions than those that were being taught in schools of education. In this book, Gillette and Hill have insightfully built on Haberman's observations and analysis to reflect the realities in today's urban schools, reinforcing the critical need for teachers who focus on learning no matter how much the current bureaucratic demands may dampen learning. Their stories of how star teachers 'teach against the grain' to engage students in learning are powerful and inspiring.'Donna M. Gollnick, Chief Academic Officer of TEACH-NOW
