Teaching for Joy and Justice is the sequel to Linda Christensen's bestselling, Reading, Writing, and Rising UpChristensen is recognized as one of the country's finest teachers. Through stories, Christensen demonstrates how she draws on students' lives and the world to teach poetry, essay, narrative, and critical literacy skills.

Practical, inspirational, passionate: Teaching for Joy and Justice reveals what happens when a teacher treats all students as intellectuals, instead of intellectually challenged.

Part autobiography, part curriculum guide, part critique of today's numbing standardized mandates, this book sings with hope—born of Christensen's more than 30 years as a classroom teacher, language arts specialist, and teacher educator.
