This scholarly work appears at a crucial moment in South Africa. With the country now democratically independent for close to 20 years, the authors provide a comprehensive description of schooling and overall education, that allows the reader to see if or how the wide social development gaps that existed during the apartheid period are changing. This book is a rare academic contribution to the current linguistic and culturally rich classroom that teachers now work in daily. The authors report that some teachers are flummoxed by what they find, newly trained teachers seem better prepared, while others bring old but good teaching habits into the classroom. Overall, this book, rooted as it is in meticulous, long-term ethnographic classroom observations and multiple teacher interviews, shows that what is effective for the learning of learners is not by any means detachable from demographic, economic or political contexts. With that in mind, the book`s intentions and structure are clear, and the initial historical analyses provide insight to the important linguistic, social and cultural connections or disconnections present in contemporary South Africa.

This volume explores the twenty-first century classroom as a uniquely intergenerational space of religious disaffiliation, and questions about how our work in the classroom can be, and is being, re-imagined for the new generation. The culturally hybrid identity of Millennials shapes their engagement with religious "others" on campus and in the classroom, pushing educators of comparative theology to develop new pedagogical strategies that leverage ways of seeing and interacting with their teachers and classmates. Reflecting on religious traditions such as Islam, Judaism, African Traditional Religions, Hinduism, Christianity, and agnosticism/atheism, this volume theorizes the theological outcomes of current pedagogies and the shifting contours of comparative theological discourse.

""It is essential for classroom teachers to be reflective. It is critical that they be aware of their own biases and prejudices. Larrivee does an excellent job of gently guiding the teacher through a look at his/her past. The first chapter creates a comfort zone with which the teacher continues to look at his/her past and consequently at his/her treatment of children."" Dr. Patricia A. Pintar, St. Mary-of-the-Woods College "Authentic Classroom Management" addresses the basics of classroom management by narrowing the gap between theory and practice to provide realistic and collaborative management options. This easy-to-read, practical text presents a broad theoretical background while focusing on the belief that effective classroom management requires careful preparation and goes beyond learning discrete skills. The text promotes a multi-dimensional and reflective perspective for managing classrooms that will prepare prospective and in-service teachers to successfully manage today's diverse classrooms. Highlighting a comprehensive range of strategies and philosophies, the text encourages alternative ways to support positive classroom behaviors. Its many exercises offer opportunity for skill development through reflection and self-questioning, emphasizing proactive ways of interacting with students to create and sustain a supportive learning community.
