For over 30 years, Teaching for Diversity and Social Justice has been the definitive sourcebook of theoretical foundations, pedagogical and design frameworks, and curricular models for social justice teaching practice. Thoroughly revised and updated, this fourth edition continues in the tradition of its predecessors to cover the most relevant issues and controversies in social justice education (SJE) in a practical, hands-on format. Filled with ready-to-apply activities and discussion questions, this book provides teachers and facilitators with an accessible pedagogical approach to issues of oppression in classrooms. The revised edition also focuses on providing students and participants with the tools needed to apply their learning about these issues. This fourth edition includes new and revised material for each of the core chapters in the book complemented by fully developed online teaching designs, including over 150 downloadables, activities, and handouts on the book’s companion website.
A classic for educators across disciplines and contexts, Teaching for Diversity and Social Justice presents a thoughtful, well-constructed, and inclusive foundation for engaging people in the complex and often daunting problems of discrimination and inequality in American society.

Praise for the previous edition:
"Social justice is a term that is increasingly over-used and for that reason runs the risk of becoming cliché. This volume clarifies and brings texture to the meaning of the term by addressing its relevance and importance to the field of education. For those interested in using education to counter injustice, inequality and racism, this book will be an invaluable resource." --Pedro Noguera, Author of City Schools and the American Dream
"A landmark in its field, this book provides the conceptual framework, historical background, and rationale for understanding the necessity and significance of social justice education. In this second edition, the editors and authors continue to enlighten, educate, and inspire all those teachers, academics, and others who refuse to accept the status quo of oppression and instead insist on working for a better world." --Sonia Nieto, Author of Affirming Diversity: The Sociopolitical Context of Multicultural Education
