This book was published 3 years ago by Teachers College Press and takes approximately 6.9 hours to read.
Speaking out against decades of injustice and challenging deficit perceptions of young learners and their families, It's Not About Grit pulls back the veil, revealing the social systems that marginalize and stigmatize mostly poor, urban students of colour and their communities.

Through the students' in-school and out-of-school experiences, enhanced with curriculum guides and award-winning video clips from EVC, Goodman encourages educators to make a difference and demonstrates how to create safe and inclusive spaces where their teaching responds to students' culture, race, gender, sexual orientation, language, housing status, and ability. Teachers will use this book to develop a pedagogy of transformative teaching.
