Book Overview

A New York Times Best Seller

Merging real stories with theory, research, and practice, a prominent scholar offers a new approach to teaching and learning for every stakeholder in urban education.

Drawing on his own experience of feeling undervalued and invisible in classrooms as a young man of color and merging his experiences with more than a decade of teaching and researching in urban America, award-winning educator Christopher Emdin offers a new lens on an approach to teaching and learning in urban schools. For White Folks Who Teach in the Hood.and the Rest of Y'all Too is the much-needed antidote to traditional top-down pedagogy and promises to radically reframe the landscape of urban education for the better.

He begins by taking to task the perception of urban youth of color as unteachable, and he challenges educators to embrace and respect each student's culture and to reimagine the classroom as a site where roles are reversed and students become the experts in their own learning.

Putting forth his theory of Reality Pedagogy, Emdin provides practical tools to unleash the brilliance and eagerness of youth and educators alike--both of whom have been typecast and stymied by outdated modes of thinking about urban education. With this fresh and engaging new pedagogical vision, Emdin demonstrates the importance of creating a family Read More chevron_right

   Every teacher should read this!
It was filled with actionable and broader conceptual food for thought. It's a must read for any teacher. I am grateful to have read this.

   I Could Not Finish This Book.
He blatantly stereotypes white teachers and how they educate students, while his message is for White people to not stereotype people of color. I think that the book was written with a positive goal in mind but as a white teacher I could not do without the generalizations that all white teachers think alike. My students don't think about the color of their skin because they love each other.

   Don’t waste your time and money
There is an accusation that white educators perpetrate inadequate pedagogy based on stupidity. It was ridiculous. It's ludicrous to draw parallels with indigenous people where there is little to none and where the majority of students are violent and victims of poverty. My students are extremely hostile, yelling, hitting, throwing things, saying the most offensive things, and many other things. The majority of students act this way every day, and I try to teach them how to respect each other and themselves. I am teaching them to be kind, respectful and responsible and not trying to make them act white.

   Advice for the White teacher written by a Black gentlemen... Ummmmm.
There wasn't one piece of practical advice to be found. It's a list of the craziest ideas you can think of. Buy a pair of hot new shoes for yourself. Referring is as follows: -develop a class fistbump. The idea is to start a focus group during lunch so you can ask the kids what they like about the class. The book was a sham and I agreed with the statement that the student had their needs met.

   Excuses
40 pages in and so far its nothing but excuses for bad behavior and blaming white people. Trying to make it through the book, hoping to get some legitimate knowledge from it. I spent 10 bucks on this and I'm upset.

   Not helpful at all.
It was an horrible thing. It is an essay on how white teachers are to blame for the failure of the education system. It didn't offer any real help or insight. I'd love to have my money back.

   This is a wonderful resource for new teachers
This is a great source for new teachers. In a small, rural, southern school, half the students are black. I felt like I was missing something in my first year. I had nothing in common with many of my students. I felt like I had messed them up every time I tried to correct them. It was awful. Emdin has opened up doors to my cultural confusion, and I am about to enter my second year with new expectations of classroom management. New teachers should read this. It recommended it.

   Very Insightful
I thought I had ordered a book, but was impressed by Emdin's thought process. This should be a must read for beginners in urban school districts.
