Teel (education, Holy Names U., Oakland, California) and Obidah (education evaluation, U. of the West Indies, Barbados) present a collection of 12 essays by a diverse group of 12 experienced American educators and practicing teachers exploring the impact of race and culture on teaching and learning. Each chapter includes the author's reflections on his/her experiences dealing with or being unaware of racism and racial and cultural inequities during a formative period of his/her life, and concrete suggestions for how educators might narrow the race and culture achievement gap. Also included is analysis of how these issues impact preservice teachers' abilities to teach urban African American students successfully, and the challenges teacher educators face in incorporating these issues in their courses. For educators, preservice teachers, and policymakers. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
