Students as Activists: Lessons From An Urban Classroom

The Serna Center is proud to sponsor Dr. Brian Schultz's keynote at the annual Multicultural Education Conference at Sacramento State University. Dr. Schultz taught fifth grade in Chicago Public Schools. There his students selected a community problem to solve- replacing their current school building in horrific disrepair- and began an amazing journey of literacy development, research, transformation, and social action. Dr. Schultz's book from this experience, Spectacular Things Happen Along the Way: Lessons from an Urban Classroom (Teachers College Press, 2008), has received numerous awards.

"An amazing tale of incredible fifth-grade citizen activists that reveals what education in America's inner cities could and should be." Jeannie Oakes, Presidential Professor in Education Equity, UCLA
