The Gloria Ladson-Billings Reader
by Abul Pitre and Jocelyn Smith Gray and Kishia Carrington James




Overview -

The Gloria Ladson-Billings Reader provides current and future educators with key selections from scholar, educator, and advocate Gloria Ladson-Billings' seminal works. Readers learn how Ladson-Billings has sought to improve the educational experience of multicultural student populations and how they, as educators, can continue her work through the development of culturally relevant pedagogy and the employment of critical practices in the classroom.

The text is organized into three sections. Section One features articles that provide readers with a framework for understanding how race and racism impact the educational experiences of students. In Section Two, readers are introduced to the components of culturally relevant pedagogy and provided with practical examples to guide them in becoming more culturally responsive. The final section underscores how educators can prepare to support diverse student populations, the personal characteristics that are vital for success in this endeavor, and how teacher education programs can improve to support these goals.

Providing readers with the tools needed to be effective educators and advocates for equality and equity, The Gloria Ladson-Billings Reader is an excellent text for programs and courses in education.
