"A must-read for all educators, particularly science education teachers who serve asinstructors in any STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) related fields. Although this work is geared towards scientists, those who work as social science educators can consider ways of expanding their teaching methodologies as a result of internalizing this book. Christopher Emdin is to be applauded for his unwavering commitment to improving achievement for all students, particularly minority students. "--education review // reseñas educativas (Nov 2011)

"Provides a fascinating look at some of the reasons for the disconnect between science educators and urban youths that goes beyond other works focused on urban youths. . . Emdin adds an important perspective to the growing discourse on the role of the student and student culture in science teaching and learning. As students and teachers continue to struggle in urban schools, and educational researchers probe for answers, understanding "hip-hop and its relation to science" (p. 116) can serve to make sense out of complexity and positively transform urban education.
