    1. This book had a few, good nuggets for teachers to consider when working with diverse populations in the classroom. The data is a bit outdated, though, so a person would need to read it with the goal of picking up philosophical advice, rather than current facts to use in the classroom. I prefer "Other People's Children," as it has great quotes from teachers in the field to help add real-world elements to the topics; however, Kuykendall does incorporate some great lists that would be helpful to us [...]

    2. The main point of this book was that successful teachers care about each student and are able to appreciate their unique talents. Good teachers are non judgmental and are willing to examine themselves for prejudices. One useful observation regarding teaching black students is that their home culture rewards being outspoken and rhythmic movement and that these qualities are repressed in the classroom. When the interests and talents of students are not taken into account or when they have felt hum [...]

    3. Why? Why are some children resilient? Why do some children follow the cycle of violence, drugs, etc? I read somewhere in college that it has to do with how many positive adults touch their lives. We are not talking about perfect adults who seem to always know the right thing to do. No. But positive adults who care. If the positive adults outnumber the negative ones, that child might have a chance. I am fairly certain that is what happened to me. That is also the concept of this book. The author [...]

    4. This was a short, easy read. It had a lot of good ideas for teachers, parents, and anyone else involved with children. The book's focus is obviously Black and Hispanic students. I have recently started teaching at an Urban school and have run into a lot of the problems this books discusses. My only problem with this book is that it blames a lot of the problems with urban students on the school and specifically the teachers. Rather than saying students need to adapt to school the author says the [...]

    5. Still be tormented by this book at school. I find it completely insulting and demeaning to the teaching profession. In addition the data is out of date and assumes far too much incompetence and lack of care on the part of the teacher. It gobbles up race stereotypes while trying to accuse teachers of using stereotypes in teaching. By reading this pathetic offering you feel like an african-american can not learn unless there is some sort of "tribal song / beat" to keep them engaged. It is a trap o [...]

    6. From Rage to Hope is an excellent read for anyone who works with kids, whether they be teachers, afterschool/youth program coordinators, administrators, volunteers, parents, etc. Kuykendall argues that school systems must adapt to the cultures and learning styles of their students (whether they are Black, Latino, Muslim, etc.) to ensure that what's being taught reaches them - and that they aren't left to slip through the cracks (or get pushed out of the school community). The strategies that she [...]

    7. I never would have read this book if I hadn't been forced to do it for school. I thought that Kuykendall was an effective speaker in person (especially if you prefer the fire-and-brimstone preacher speaking style), but her book was not nearly as interesting as she was. This was supposed to be a second edition, but most of the statistics were REALLY oldlots of data from the early 80s, etcI also felt like she based the book pretty much entirely on her own experiences as a black female; she just ta [...]

    8. I finished this book a few months ago. It was informative, but was mainly focused on black students. Since I wanted something with a good deal on Hispanic students too, I was a bit disappointed.
