There will also be an opportunity to sign up for the Caribbean Solidarity Network’s Action Committee and new community reading group.

DISTINGUISHED EDUCATOR DR CHRIS EMDIN LAUNCHES NEW BOOK IN TORONTO‏


DISTINGUISHED EDUCATOR DR CHRIS EMDIN LAUNCHES NEW BOOK IN TORONTO
                                                Inline image
A Different Booklist and Free Your Mind HipHop Stemposium present 
                                     
 
BOOK LAUNCH
 
“For White Folks Who Teach in the Hood…and the Rest of Y’all Too: Reality Pedagogy and Urban Education”
 
BY DISTINGUISHED EDUCATOR, DR CHRISTOPHER EMDIN

Drawing on his own experience, Dr. Christopher Emdin offers a new lens on an approach to teaching and learning in urban schools. He begins by taking to task the perception of urban youth of color as unteachable, and he challenges educators to embrace and respect each student’s culture and to reimagine the classroom as a site where roles are reversed and students become the experts in their own learning.


With this fresh and engaging new pedagogical vision, Emdin demonstrates the importance of creating a family structure and building communities within the classroom, using culturally relevant strategies like hip-hop music and call-and-response, and connecting the experiences of urban youth to indigenous populations globally. Merging real stories with theory, research, and practice, Emdin demonstrates how by implementing the “Seven C’s” of reality pedagogy in their own classrooms, urban youth of color benefit from truly transformative education.

How To Talk To Crazy People Available for Sale at A Different Booklist in Toronto


How To Talk To Crazy People. Brilliantly written with such clarity that I immerse myself in the emotional roller coaster ride with Donna. Honest and open, heart wrenching at times. When Donna finds that there is no money in her account, she is left feeling helpless and powerless but did not let that defeat her. She struggles over every hurdle and is not defeated. Leaves my heartbeat thumping, and anxious to know where the next page would take me. A bitter sweet account of what it is like to live with ‘craziness’ in a world of ‘normal’ people. This rare booking helps us to understand the daily internal struggles of living with depression and how the health care community, here and in Africa approaches and treats it. Her aunt locking the door? (The use of Haladol, in Africa) even with the knowledge that only second-hand and third-hand medicines are sent from America and Europe to Africa?)
