. 58:3. (Pp. 280-298). This article discusses issues of race in classroom settings. It begins by discussing severalexamples, and Delpit calls race the silenced dialogue. Five aspects of power Delpit statesare: issues of power are enacted in classrooms; culture of power; the rules of the cultureof power are a reflection of the rules of culture of those who have power; for those in theculture of power, being told the rules of that culture make acquiring power easier; thosewith power are frequently least aware of the existence of that power (Jossey-Bass 169).Delpit advocates that children of color must be taught the codes within the culture of  power, and that the teaching of children of color should be in collaboration with thosewho share their culture (such as teachers).Duckworth, Eleanor.

. Westview Press.This article describe the interplay of teaching and learning. Freire discusses studying,reading, and codification. Freire describes the importance of fostering a love of readingand writing in children and says, “If our schools, from the earliest grades, were to devotethemselves to the work of nurturing in students a taste for reading and writing and wereto maintain that nurturing throughout their school lives, there would possibly by fewer graduate students who spoke of their inability to write or their insecurity about writing”(Jossey-Bass 59). Freire also says it is essential for educators to read the works of Piaget,Vygotsky, Ferreiro, Weffort, Lajolo, and da Silva.Fried, Robert L. (2001). Passionate teaching.
The Passionate Teacher 
. Boston: BeaconPress.Fried writes that passion for teaching is essential to being a good teacher. Being a passionate teacher will inspire students and change lives. He gives several examples of  passionate teachers and says that all passionate teachers “…organize and focus their

 Phi Delta
. (pp. 290-4).This article discusses why the issue of urban school reform is largely overlooked.Haberman says this is ignored because of the assumption of what teaching is, teacherscannot be change, and the assumption that urban student’s low scores are the result of socioeconomic status and not because of teaching. The urban teaching style is whatHaberman calls the “pedagogy of poverty” and consists of: giving information, askingquestions, giving directions, making assignments, monitoring seatwork, reviewingassignments, giving tests, assigning homework, reviewing homework, settling disputes, punishing noncompliance, marking papers, and giving grades. In contrast, somehighlights of good teacher involving students include: issues they think are vital,explanations of human differences, helping to see major concepts, big ideas, and principles, applying ideas, active involvement, direct involvement in real-life experience,experience with heterogeneous groups, challenge to common ideas, redoing or perfectingwork, technology, and reflection on their own lives.McLeod, Alex (1986).
