Melisa Cahnmann-Taylor and Mariana Souto-Manning are pleased to announce the release of their book Teachers Act Up: Creating Multilingual Learning Communities through Theatre, published by Teachers College Press ( 
Teachers Act Up is based on a six-year project with bi- and multilingual educators to critically and theatrically explore difficult conversations around aspects of race, language, class, and curriculum they are likely to have with colleagues, students, administrators, and parents. The authors have practiced the theatrical strategies presented here with pre- and in-service teachers in numerous contexts, including college courses, professional development seminars, and PreK-12 classrooms.
The book includes step-by-step instructions and vivid photographs to help readers use these revoluationary 
theatre strategies in their own contexts for a truly unique learning experience.

Going to AERA? We'll have a panel presentation Sat. May 1 at 10am and a book signing at the Teacher College Press Booth #411 also on Saturday at 1:30pm
