Transformative Teachers offers an insightful look at the growing movement of civic-minded educators who are using twenty-first-century participatory practices and connected technologies to organize change from the ground up. Kira J. Baker-Doyle highlights the collaborative, grassroots tactics that activist teachers are implementing to transform their profession and pursue greater social justice and equity in education.

Praise

This book is a reminder that transformative teaching didn’t begin with the Internet. There is a rich history of teachers and learners working together to explore and better the world. Baker-Doyle captures stories of true transformative teachers, and outlines how they, and others, can take up thoughtful practices that will change lives for the better. Along the way, she folds theory and practice into useful ways forward for the teachers of today and tomorrow. I highly recommend this text. — Bud Hunt, information technology and technical services manager, Clearview Library District, Colorado
