Transformative Pedagogy Inspired by Janusz Korczak
"In our increasingly diverse and interconnected world, bringing the life and work of Janusz Korczak into the classroom is of vital importance to teachers and students. As we advocate for students' social, emotional, and academic needs, Korczak provides innovative ideas and strategies for developing compassionate and culturally responsive classrooms. After participating in a recent Korczak educators’ workshop, I am now empowered to use his ideas to effectively educate the whole child and promote student agency and self-advocacy."

Black Student Leaders Analyze the Movement They Led
"Changing Academia Forever explains how we in the Black Student Union were able to fundamentally change universities in America. We organized a strike, we worked closely with our communities, and we made a coalition with students of every racial group. This is the kind of organizing we need now to save humanity and the planet."
Danny Glover, American actor, film director, and political activist
Subversive Teaching in the English Language Arts Classroom
“ELA teachers—now more than ever—are faced with awful decisions in the current context of teaching: Should they do what is best for their students or what will allow them to keep working with students? Dyches, Sams, and Boyd emphatically say, “Both” and I agree the way forward in ELA instruction is to be subversive, to be acutely aware of the dominant discourses and work constantly to help students write themselves into the discussions, texts, and narratives of their multi-faceted and complex lives. These editors and authors provide just what the profession needs at just the right time.”

Applications for Critical Qualitative Research
"By questioning both the object and the subject of teaching, this book challenges us to think in new ways about the processes involved in imparting new knowledge and skills to students. If it refuses to call itself a book in the traditional sense of the word, then it is because it carefully and skillfully sidesteps offering answers and instead, following Deleuze’s great advice, it pursues questions and problems, pushing them to their limits. That limit point, interestingly enough, is revealed as the point where, rather unexpectedly, but entirely convincingly, Deleuze and Derrida meet. The book doesn’t make the mistake of conflating the two, but it does open up a very nice picture of the two shaking hands over the corpse of traditional ways of thinking about language teaching."
Professor Ian Buchanan, Cultural Studies, Indigenous Studies, Science & Technology Studies and Environmental Humanities (Discipline leader), University of Wollongong, Australia
