Publisher's Summary

“Be prepared to be embraced with words, images, stories, examples, experiences, and a love for teaching in community with young people toward social and cultural justice.” (Django Paris)

As middle and high school teachers, we know that students begin to develop racial identities and ideologies as early as preschool. By the time they reach us, there is much socializing and learning that needs to be undone. Textured teaching is a way to seamlessly embed the social justice work that is needed to undo; to begin to make things right. 

With Culturally Sustaining Practice as its foundation, Textured Teaching helps secondary teachers in any school setting stop wondering and guessing how to implement teaching and learning that leads to social justice. Lorena shares her framework for creating a classroom environment that is highly rigorous and engaging, and that reflects the core traits of Textured Teaching: student-driven, community centered, interdisciplinary, experiential, and flexible.  

Throughout the book, Lorena shares lesson design strategies that build traditional literacy skills while supporting students in developing their social justice skills at the same time. The actionable strategies Lorena uses to bring Textured Teaching values to life illuminate what is possible when we welcome all types of texts, all types of voices, and all forms of expression into the classroom.

Textured Teaching

Appreciate learning about a teaching journey with many connections to my own. I own both the text & now audio recording. Many points to return to, love that the audio was read by the author herself. The journals do something more for the reading experience. Shout out to the All of the Above family which is how I learned of Lorena Germán's work in education. Thankful to have a resource I can point fellow educators to as well. So much to revisit, quote & apply.
