Title: College Aspirations and Access in Working-Class Rural Communities: The Mixed Signals, Challenges, and New Languages First-Generation Students Encounter
Date of Publication: December 29, 2017
Publisher: Lexington Books
ISBN: 978-1498536868

“Ardoin provides an in-depth view of the current state of secondary school systems in rural communities, including especially alarming information on how this system affects the students themselves and places strain on rural high school guidance counselors. Rurality and geographic location as identifiers of underserved students are not yet common among academic literature, yet as shown, they greatly affect the ability and aspirations towards higher education of rural students. Rural students nationally will greatly benefit if readers implement the advice proposed in this book.” –Karen M. Ganss, Southern Utah University

Date of Publication: August 15, 2017
Publisher: Harvard Education Press
ISBN: 978-1682530689

“The promise of disciplinary literacy has been unrealized in large part because of systematic implementation issues. This book provides a solution. The authors articulate an approach that will ensure that teachers are supported to engage students in disciplinary thinking. Their recommendations are based on solid research and practical experience and have the potential to transform the learning experiences for adolescents and young adults.” —Douglas Fisher, chair, Department of Educational Leadership, San Diego State University

Date of Publication: March 17, 2017
Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers
ISBN: 978-1475823301

“Lots of authors insist that students need scaffolds to read complex text, but Robertson, Ford-Connors and Dougherty go much further showing us how to identify specific scaffolds and then how to provide instruction that supports students toward independence as learners. Their detailed classroom scenarios made me feel like I was having team teaching experiences. This text offers instructional ideas that promote learning for new and novice teachers and more experienced teachers alike, and it should be a must read in teacher education classes and for in-service teachers.” –Diane Lapp, EdD, Distinguished Professor of Education, San Diego State University and Director of Learning, Health Sciences Middle School, San Diego, CA

Date of Publication: March 18, 2008
Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan
ISBN: 0230604013
“Cronin provides us with a complete and compelling version of historical developments in the Boston Public Schools through most of the 20th century. While much ink has been spent on ‘busing in Boston’ and the history of the schools through the desegregation era of the 1970s, Cronin places this and other developments in the long history of the civil rights and education reform movements in Boston and the nation. Anyone concerned with the difficult work of reforming urban public education should read this book.”–James W. Fraser, Professor of History and Education at New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development
