In this collection of articles, Geneva Gay invites readers to make educational equity and excellence for all students a reality, not just an ethic or an ideal. Through teaching narratives and pragmatic examples, Gay illustrates that a combination of ideology, ethics, personal commitment, and praxis on the part of educators is essential to achieving equity for underachieving racial and ethnic minority students. The text is organized into three themes: Identity(how the identities and behaviors of educators are influenced by their membership in ethnic and cultural groups); Ideology(how the beliefs, attitudes, and expectations of educators shape their behaviors and instruction); and Action (suggestions for equitable teaching, classroom management, curriculum development, and teacher preparation). Each individual essay can be read separately, but they are especially powerful when read in conjunction with each other. Educating for Equity and Excellence is applicable to a broad spectrum of teaching contexts, including early childhood, elementary, secondary, and college.

Book Features:

  • A good blend of ideas and actions for teaching diverse students, including Black, Asian American, Native American, and Latinx students.
