Stories of the lives of white teachers, as white teachers, too often simplify the complexities and conflicts of their work with students of color. Drawing on in-depth interviews with five white teachers, as well as on her own experiences, Audrey Lensmire provides generous, complex, and critical accounts of white teachers, against the backdrop of her sharp critique of schools and our country s awful race history. With Charlotte, Lensmire explores how hard it often is for white people to talk about race. Through Darrin s stories, Lensmire illuminates this white teacher s awakening as a raced person, his tragic relationship with a brilliant African-American student, and how his need for control in the classroom undermined his own sense of himself as a good person. In her interpretations of stories told by Paul, Frida, and Margaret, Lensmire examines how care and desire play out in teaching students of color. In a society in which we avoid serious conversations about race and whiteness and what these mean for the education of our nation s children, Lensmire s book is an invaluable resource. "

With surprising candor, the authors of (Re)narrating Teacher Identity: Telling Truths and Becoming Teachers crack open what it means to become and be a teacher in the twenty-first century United States. In an effort to dig deeper into the challenge of teaching, four new teachers engaged in a summer writers workshop. Drawing from the work of Barbara Kamler (2001), the teachers used artifacts such as school graffiti and text messages to "reposition" and (re)narrate their identities as teachers. In braving truth-telling, the authors built a collective well-being. These stories are an important resource for novice teachers, experienced teachers, and teacher educators alike for disrupting dominant teacher narratives and moving towards alternatives.

Annawadi ist ein Slum jenseits des luxuriösen Flughafens von Mumbai. Hier wohnen Tausende Menschen in notdürftig errichteten Hütten. Eng ist es hier und schmutzig. Und nicht selten fallen hungrige Ratten nachts über die Kinder her. In Annawadi lebt Abdul, der Müllsammler. Dass er geschickt ist in seinem Job, dass er Müll zu sammeln, zu sortieren und weiterzuverkaufen weiß wie kein Zweiter, ruft viele Neider auf den Plan. Denn der Erfolg des einen bedeutet den möglichen Ruin des anderen. Und jeder in dem Slum kämpft mit allen Mitteln um die pure Existenz. Katherine Boo erzählt nicht nur die Geschichten der Menschen in Annawadi – sie erzählt auch von ihrer Hoffnung und ihrem Streben nach einem besseren Leben und von den Auswirkungen des westlichen Konsums bis in dieses Eckchen der Welt.

Wenn in den USA schwarze Teenager von Polizisten ermordet werden, ist das nur ein Problem von individueller Verfehlung? Nein, denn rassistische Gewalt ist fest eingewebt in die amerikanische Identität – sie ist das, worauf das Land gebaut ist. Afroamerikaner besorgten als Sklaven seinen Reichtum und sterben als freie Bürger auf seinen Straßen. In seinem schmerzhaften, leidenschaftlichen Manifest verdichtet Ta-Nehisi Coates amerikanische und persönliche Geschichte zu einem Appell an sein Land, sich endlich seiner Vergangenheit zu stellen. Sein Buch wurde in den USA zum Nr.-1-Bestseller und ist schon jetzt ein Klassiker, auf den sich zukünftig alle Debatten um Rassismus beziehen werden.

Laura Wishart ist fort. Ein für alle Mal. Sie wurde auf einer seltsamen Lichtung getötet, die nur Jasper Jones bekannt ist. Und ich habe sie dort hängen sehen. Australien 1965. Mitten in der Nacht wird der 13-jährige Charlie Bucktin vom Klopfen an seinem Fenster geweckt. Draußen steht Jasper Jones, der Außenseiter der kleinen Stadt Corrigan und zugleich ein unbestimmter Held für Charlie. Jasper bittet ihn um Hilfe, und so stiehlt sich Charlie mit ihm durch den nächtlichen australischen Busch – voller Angst, aber auch voller Abenteuerlust. Auf einer geheimen Lichtung wird Charlie Zeuge von Jaspers schrecklicher Entdeckung. Mit diesem beklemmenden Geheimnis in seinem Herzen durchlebt Charlie eine Zeit der Angst, der falschen Verdächtigungen – und des Erwachens. In einem einzigen drückend heißen Sommer, in dem sich Charlies Leben für immer verändert, wird er lernen, die Wahrheit von der Lüge zu unterscheiden und sich vor Gerüchten zu fürchten wie vor einem Fluch. «Der wunderbar geschriebene Roman erzählt von Freundschaft, Rassismus und sozialer Ausgrenzung. Eine Hommage an ‹Wer die Nachtigall stört› und ‹Die Abenteuer des Huckleberry Finn›.» (Marie Claire UK)
