Curriculum and Students in Classrooms: Everyday Urban Education in an Era of Standardization is a timely and thought-provoking work that attends to often-neglected aspects of schooling: the everyday interactions between curriculum, teachers, and students. Walter S. Gershon addresses the bridge between the curriculum and the students, the teachers, and their everyday pedagogical decisions. In doing so, this book explores the students’ perspectives of their teachers, the language arts curriculum at an urban elementary school, and how the particular combination of curriculum and teaching work in tandem to narrow students academic and social possibilities and reproduce racial, class, and gender inequities as normal. Recommended for scholars of education and curriculum studies.
