Appears too limited in experiences behind the premise of the book The author speaks from experience and writes in an easy to read format providing for some interesting thoughts. However, I do not find a balanced approach presented here. I do not doubt the experiences here, but the book seems to present itself as "research based" but t. "Highly recommended!

''Opportunity to learn (OTL) factors interact and ultimately influence mathematics achievement. The author presents a ''potential'' model rather than a ''deficit'' model, complete with teaching strategies and best practices for teaching mathematics in innovative and relevant ways. The case study is an important contribution to the urban mathematics education literature.''--William F. This volume provides insights into the role of peer interactions in the mathematics learning process. Many important OTL interactions take place in school settings. Tate,Edward Mallinckrodt Distinguished University Professor in Arts & Sciences, Washington University in St. It also examines societal perceptions of urban students and how these affect teaching and learning, policies, and mathematics outcomes.. LouisDrawing on perceptions, behaviors, and experiences of students at an urban high school--both high and low achievers--this timely book demonstrates how urban youth can be meaningful
