Summary

In this time of narrowed curricula and high-stakes accountability, Gregory Michie's tales of struggle and triumph in Holler If You Hear Me: The Education of a Teacher and His Studentsare as relevant as ever. Since it was first published in 1999, Hollerhas become essential reading for new and seasoned teachers alike and is an inspiring read for many others. Weaving back and forth between Michie's awakening as a teacher and the first-person stories of his students, this highly acclaimed book paints an intimate and compassionate portrait of teaching and learning in urban America. While the popular notion of what it's like to teach in city schools is dominated by horror stories and hero tales, Michie and his students reside somewhere in between these extremes#x14;between the miracles and the metal detectors. This updated 10th Anniversary Edition of Michie's moving memoir of teaching on Chicago's South Side features a new introduction and a new afterword that includes updates on several of his students.
