This significantly revised edition will help prospective and new city teachers navigate the realities of city teaching. Now the classic introduction to urban teaching, this book explains how global, national, state, and local reforms have impacted what teachers need to know to not only survive but to do their jobs well. The Third Edition melds new insights and perspectives from Daniel Jerome--New York City teacher, social justice activist, and parent of color--with what Lois Weiner, a seasoned teacher educator, has learned from research and decades of experience working with city teachers and students in a variety of settings. Together, the authors explore how successful teachers deal with the complexity, difficulty, and rewarding challenges of teaching in today's city schools.

Book Features:

* A highly readable exploration of the moral, pedagogical, and political complexity of teaching in urban schools.

* Research-based advice combined with real-life examples of the problems city teachers face.

* Challenges associated with teaching in multi-ethnic and multi-racial settings.

* Critical examination of how the altered landscape of education has changed teachers' professional obligations.
