Portraits of Evangelical English Language Arts Teachers
“Navigating Moments of Hesitation takes a close look at a largely unexplored and often taboo aspect of K-12 education: how teachers’ religious beliefs inﬂuence their classroom instruction. In this book, Hadley provides detailed portraits of three evangelical Christian teachers and offers a critical analysis of the role religion plays in how these teachers enact their formal instruction and engage with students who have aspects of their identities that contradict Biblical teachings. Although the portraits are of language arts teachers, this book offers important insights for practitioners and teacher educators in all subject areas.”

LGBTQ Families Speak Out
"Our Children Are Your Students points to the everyday challenges and celebrations of LGBTQ families and children as they navigate their way through the Canadian education system. Incorporating the voices of LGBTQ families who are so often silenced by schools, Tara Goldstein and the LGBTQ Families research team have done a truly wonderful job in bringing their experiences to light. An inspiring, honest, hopeful, sensitive, thought-provoking and beautifully presented book. All teachers, pre-service teachers and teacher educators must read this. In all honesty, I could hardly put it down."

Looking Forward, Looking Back
"Dr. Ann Wendle provides us with a thorough and succinct text discussing and analyzing a deeper understanding of women and gender in higher education. Notably, this book engages the reader with applied elements designed to stimulate awareness, encourage dialogue, and effect positive social change. As a gay cis man who has worked in higher education for more than 20 years, it’s refreshing to deepen my learning from a text that acknowledges the complexities and barriers facing women today while providing concrete opportunities for those who seek authentic equity and inclusion in higher education."

A Field Guide to Course Design for Transformative Education
“Bold and empowering! A compelling guide on learning-centered teaching that demands a shift from status-quo…from deep-seated, colonized practices that have long infected the professoriate and crippled success by generations of students. If you seek powerful forms of inquiry through capacious issues that matter, this book is for you. If you desire evidence-based strategies to bring coherence to each student’s learning, this guide is crucial to that goal. If you seek insight into a liberated academy…rooted in democracy and equity to activate meaning-making by all students, this guide is a fresh glimpse into provocative possibilities for higher education.”
