Teaching Fairly in an Unfair World, 2nd Edition
Teaching fairly in an unfair world shows teachers how to create inclusive classrooms where students explore difficult issues, recognise unfairness for both themselves and others, and question their assumptions. This timely book aims to amplify students’ voices as well as challenge both teachers and students to think critically and ethically about equity and social justice.

It encourages teachers to evaluate their core teaching beliefs and acknowledge the realities of their students’ lives so that all can achieve a richer understanding of our complex world.
