Indeed, Teaching to Change the World has become more than a book title- for thousands of individuals and for entire teacher education programs it is an everyday expression that embodies rigorous preparation and the highest professional aspirations for becoming a teacher. Author Jeannie Oakes was the founding director of UCLAs Center X - the institutional home of the universitys teacher education program - a program based on the research and principles that Teaching To Change The World represents. Oakes draws from her distinguished research career as a sociologist of education to integrate the components of educational foundations into a thematic and ideological whole. The result is a sustainable theory of education that positions new teachers to be highly competent in the classroom, lifelong education reformers, and education leaders and partners with students and families. and a parallel career as education writer and consultant. His photographs of the books featured teachers and their students reveal that social justice classrooms are both ordinary and inspired.
