This ground-breaking book is committed to creating inclusive classrooms where students feel safe and are aware of what is fair, not only for them but for others. This powerful book helps teachers redefine an inclusive curriculum by questioning what is taught, how it is taught, to whom, and under what conditions. It offers teachers a wealth of challenging, open-ended pursuits that give students voice and help them better understand their world. The book explores opportunities for students to connect with social justice issues in the real world through imagined experiences found in short stories, novels, plays, picture books, graphic novels, and primary source documents, such as letters. A glossary of more than fifty strategies is included, along with reproducible pages for easy classroom use. The strategies range from co-operative and vocabulary games to voice-over narration and bursting-the-bubble in graphic novels.
