FOR RELEASE

Huntington, Ind.— Dr. Terrell M. Peace, Director of Teacher Education at Huntington College, has been a contributor in a recently published book entitled, Racism in the Classroom: Case Studies. The book was edited by Nancy L. Quisenberry and John McIntyre of Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, and it is a joint publication of the Association of Teacher Educators and the Association for Childhood Education International.

This book is a follow up to an earlier volume entitled Educators Healing Racism. The work was also jointly published by The Association of Teacher Educators and The Association for Childhood Education International and was so well received that a follow up was created.

Racism In the Classroom: Case Studies is based on the writing of teacher and teacher educators, like Peace, that responded to a specific case study dealing with racial issues in the classroom. They also elaborated on their responses in order to allow the readers to gain a better understanding of the rationale behind their responses.

Peace’s contribution to the work was his response to a case study on a confrontation between a Japanese-American Student and an African-American Student. The argument took place in a high school History classroom, as the two students discussed their own respective experiences with racism.

“This book will be a very practical and helpful resource for classroom teachers of all age groups,” said Peace.

Huntington College is comprehensive Christian college of the liberal arts offering graduate and undergraduate programs in more than 50 academic concentrations. US News and World Report ranks Huntington among the best in the Midwest. Founded in 1897 by the Church of the United Brethren in Christ, Huntington College is located on a contemporary, lakeside campus in Huntington, Indiana.
