At the same time, author Steven Goodman, founding executive director of NYC's highly acclaimed Educational Video Center (EVC) for nearly 35 years, shows the tremendous intelligence, resilience, and sense of agency of these students. Through the students' in-school and out-of-school experiences, enhanced with a curriculum guide and award-winning video clips from EVC, Goodman encourages educators to make a difference and demonstrates how to create a safe and inclusive school climate where their teaching responds to students' culture, race, gender, sexual orientation, language, housing status, and ability.

Provides a comprehensive review of the issues that students bring to the classroom, including health and housing, police and juvenile justice, immigration, gender and identity, and foster care. Links to original clips from student-produced video documentaries and a curriculum guide to spark discussions in college courses, professional development workshops, and high school classes: www.tcpress.com/goodman-video-clips.

    This book makes compelling arguments that dispel the notion of grit that so many school systems adopted years ago. While I still believe in Dweck's perceptions of mindsets, cultivating mindsets through grit is ineffective for students who have experienced trauma. I did find Goodman's writing style a bit hard to follow and I think examples of what educators can do instead of theory, then examples of how students are living, and wrapping it up would be more effective. Just because Goodman gives in This book makes compelling arguments that dispel the notion of grit that so many school systems adopted years ago. While I still believe in Dweck's perceptions of mindsets, cultivating mindsets through grit is ineffective for students who have experienced trauma. I did find Goodman's writing style a bit hard to follow and I think examples of what educators can do instead of theory, then examples of how students are living, and wrapping it up would be more effective. Just because Goodman gives insight into poverty doesn't mean teachers know how to create trauma-informed curriculum. Also, I hate that once again a white author is profiting over marginalized students' lived experiences.

    Every teacher should read this book. Goodman expertly shows the overlap between trauma and systemic issues of inequity such as racism, incarceration, police violence, homophobia, transphobia, misogyny, poverty, immigration, and foster care. Throughout, students tell their stories supplemented by quality research. This book puts in plain words what many people are too afraid to say, gives a clear call to stand up and address these issues for the good of our students and listen to students' experi Every teacher should read this book. Goodman expertly shows the overlap between trauma and systemic issues of inequity such as racism, incarceration, police violence, homophobia, transphobia, misogyny, poverty, immigration, and foster care. Throughout, students tell their stories supplemented by quality research. This book puts in plain words what many people are too afraid to say, gives a clear call to stand up and address these issues for the good of our students and listen to students' experiences, and supports that call with clear teaching and administrative strategies to support students. Easily one of the best trauma-informed education texts I've read.

    Extremely important and insightful book, especially for teachers. Although, everyone would be able to get something out of it.
