Featuring voices from literature and philosophy in dialogue with the living stage of classrooms, streets, and community spaces, this book offers an imaginative and practical guide to democratic education.Teaching and Learning on the Verge will help educators to:Apply models for breaking down walls between school and society.Provide students with experiences that deepen their understanding of identity, justice, and relationships.Make learning meaningful to students by bridging communities, generations, and other social divides.Resist a narrow focus on achievement and make space for students as independent thinkers and leaders of social change.Make schools stronger by challenging the processes that people in power use to thwart movements for equality.
