Description-

  • Growing Up White is for everyone who wants to know more about our schools, our community, our country, and ourselves. Julie Landsman takes the reader on an inventory of her life, pulling from events and scenes, a set of lessons learned. She discloses honestly and unflinchingly the privileges she has experienced as a white person and connects those to her presence in city classrooms where she taught for over 25 years. As a teacher Julie made mistakes, learned from them, made more and concludes that understanding race in America is an ongoing process. Her book is rich with suggestions for working in our schools today, where we find a primarily white teaching force and an expanding population of students of color. She believes that these students make our schools rich and exciting places in which to work. Landsman also believes that white teachers can reach their students in deep and positive ways. Because she invites you to go along with her in revealing the basis of her upbringing and her choices, the story itself is engaging. Readers arrive at the final chapters with an appreciation not only for the complexity of our history as individuals around race, gender and class but with real hope in education as a way to create a place where all children get a fair chance at success. Julie can be reached at jlandsman@goldengate.net.

Reviews-

  • Gail L. Thompson, PhD I applaud Julie Landsman for her courage and candor in vividly illustrating how she and countless others have benefited from white privilege. The reflective exercises and practical strategies that she recommends can enable educators to deal with their ownracial baggage, and increase their efficacy with students of color. Because this rich narrative can empower both educators and students, Landsman has made another excellent contribution to the growing body of literature on white privilege, diversity, andmust have conversations.
  • Parker J. Palmer, author of "Let Your Life Speak" and "The Courage to Teach" Racism, personal and institutional, is one of the most fundamental ills of our society, a fact we blink at our peril. How can we approach this painful truth in a way that opens us to an honest examination of our own shadows while still evoking the betterangels of our nature? For years, Julie Landsman has done courageous and distinguished work helping educators respond to that question. Her new book, Growing Up White, contains the best answers I've seen. Here is a book that helps us understand the other by helping us understand ourselves, marking the most reliable path I know toward personal and social healing...
  • Chance W. Lewis This book is destined to be a 'classic.' Julie Landsman's sequence of unique insights into what it means to grow up White is a significant contribution to the field of education. The suggestions offered at the end of each short lesson will become nuggetsof wisdom for all teachers who seek to make a difference in the lives of students in the 21st century. I highly recommend this book!!!!
  • Robert W. Simmons III Julie Landsman provides a critical analysis of privilege. This book should be mandatory reading for everyone interested in racial identity development. Landsman is a voice we should listen to as we move forward as a nation.....
  • Eddie Moore, Jr., PhD Julie Landsman continues to produce work for change agents. Her research and personal experiences are informative, challenging and practical for all educators. I strongly suggest you pick this up and be prepared to take action!!!!!
