Teaching for Diversity and Social Justice
The website is meant to offer tools for an approach to social justice practice that is experiential, student-centered, interactive, dialogic, and question-probing rather than answer-providing. This approach is more fully described and spelled out in Teaching for Diversity and Social Justice, Second Edition edited by Maurianne Adams, Lee Anne Bell, and Pat Griffin. For instructors, especially, who want to know more about this approach, we recommend Teaching for Diversity and Social Justice, Second Edition as a resource.

For nearly a decade, Teaching for Diversity and Social Justice has been the definitive sourcebook of theoretical foundations and curricular frameworks for social justice teaching practice. This thoroughly revised second edition continues to provide teachers and facilitators with an accessible pedagogical approach to issues of oppression in classrooms. Building on the groundswell of interest in social justice education, the second edition offers coverage of current issues and controversies while preserving the hands-on format and inclusive content of the original. Teaching for Diversity and Social Justice presents a well-constructed foundation for engaging the complex and often daunting problems of discrimination and inequality in American society. This book includes a CD-ROM with extensive appendices for participant handouts and facilitator preparation.
