Summary

This book provides a much-needed bridge between the theory and practice of transformative education by offering a step-by-step process for teachers, students, and families to become empowered as authors.

Alma Flor Ada and Isabel Campoy, renowned authors and educators, set the context by explaining the concepts behind transformative education in a clear and reader-friendly style. Then they invite teachers to discover the power of authoring their own books for children and using them in the classroom to inspire students' and families' own writing. An abundance of examples show the power of teachers discovering their authentic voice, and how successful this community-building process has been in schools across the country.

Authors in the Classroom has the potential to change limited and limiting concepts of education by helping us re-imagine the power of education to liberate the creative spirit within each one of us.
